This book ended up being so much better than I thought it was going to be. When I put it on my reserve list I had something like one of Nicholas Sparks books in mind but had high hopes it would be a little better. Not all that much, but some better.
I was wrong. This was a very good book. Doss not only has his wife's cancer to worry about but also has to battle her family every inch of the way in order to give her the kind of ending of her life that she wants.
He was a fishing guide and struggling artist from a south George trailer park. She was the beautiful only child of South Carolina's most powerful senator. Yet once Doss Michaels and Abigail Grace Coleman met by accident, they each felt they'd found their true soul mate. Ten years into their marriage, when Abbie faces a life-threatening illness, Doss battles it with her every step of the way. And when she makes a list of ten things she hopes to accomplish before she loses the fight for good, Doss is there, too, supporting her and making everything possible. Together they steal away in the middle of the night to embark upon a 130-mile trip down the St. Mary's River--a voyage Doss promised Abbie in the early days of their courtship.
