Book Review: “A Caregiver? Me?” by Linda Bush

** I was given a free copy of this book for an honest review. These are my thoughts.

This was a book written by someone who chronicled their journey in learning how to take care of their spouse who had cancer. Ms. Bush wanted to give an open and honest process of the journey. She admitted that they may have done some things that seemed different to others, but it was the way they chose to face the journey together.

I loved the way she wrote this book. There are many lessons on how to properly care for a spouse going through a journey with a chronic illness. This story is broader than one person’s journey with cancer. The couple grew up together and then drifted apart after college each having a family. Years later they began to correspond and rebuild the friendship. When she flew out to meet him was the day he found out he had cancer. She continued the relationship and loved him till the end.

This was a refreshing account of the good and the bad. Ms. Bush held nothing back. This book is a great reference for those just starting the journey or words of encouragement for those who are further down the road. My only complaint about this book is that it is only offered in an e-book format. There is a market for those who are older that need this book and may not be able to download it to read. Not all senior adults can make this step. That is a same, because everyone should have a copy of this book.
