At first read, the purpose of this book seemed to be a timeline from diagnosis to death of David Hallman's partner, Bill Conklin. From August 7-23 of 2009, the reader is led thro-ugh the daily ups and downs of Bill and David's journey with cancer. The grief experienced by David is palpable, and the acceptance and peaceful attitude of Bill is comforting. Although this book would appeal to all audiences, the general medical population would benefit, including hospice and palliative care professionals as well as any oncology specialty.
