From Library Journal:

Celebrity psychologist and former Radio America talk-show host Lynn teams up with veteran freelance writer Isaacs (Just a Note To Say...Perfect Words for Every Occasion), who nursed her husband through several major illnesses, to write a cogent and practical self-help book for women with seriously ill male partners. Divided into sections that address the adaptation women, their partners, and their relationship have to make to medical problems, the work is clearly structured and easy to read. It effectively combines psychological advice with vignettes, exercises, checklists, and recommendations. While the authors articulate all the emotional issues involved, they also offer pragmatic advice on getting support from others and dealing with medical bureaucracy. A brief list of resources appears at the end. This smart and effective book will be useful to a general audience but speaks primarily to women in the baby-boom generation who are facing the challenges of aging.
