Summary Singer Joey Martin and her songwriter husband Rory Feek were enjoying a steadily growing fan base in country music and a baby daughter when Joey was diagnosed with a rapidly spreading cancer. Rory blogged about the final months of Joey's life. In this memoir, Rory takes us for the first time into his own challenging life story and what it was like growing up in rural America with little money and even less family stability. He helps us not only to connect more fully to his and Joey's story but also to our own journeys. He shows what can happen when we are fully open in life's key moments, whether when meeting our life companion or tackling an unexpected tragedy. He also gives never-before-revealed details on their life together and what he calls "the long goodbye," the blessing of being able to know that life is going to end and taking advantage of it. Rory shows how we are all actually there already and how we can learn to live that way every day.
