To Love What Is: A Marriage Transformed

To Love What Is: A Marriage Transformed, by Alix Kates Shulman, is a beautiful, poignant love story spanning several decades. This memoir will touch your heart, and will touch home for you if you are or have been a caregiver for your spouse.

Here is an introductory review on’s website from School Library Journal:

“In her third memoir (after Drinking the Rain), Shulman details the transformative effects of her husband’s traumatic brain injury at the age of 75. Prior to Scott’s fall from a loft bed, their relationship had been one of two deeply committed yet autonomous souls. Steadfast in her opposition to a nursing home, the author decided to tend to her husband herself. A genuinely moving story, especially of interest to those who’ve experienced or known those who’ve suffered from traumatic brain injury or who have devoted their lives to caring for another.”—Elizabeth Brinkley, Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
