Gail Sheehy Writes About Caregiving

A few years ago Gail Sheehy published her most important book since "Passages". She says that when she wrote that much earlier book she never conceived that there would be a life passage that included remarriage, illness, cancer and caregiving. In "Passages in Caregiving" she details the cycles that occur in caregiving and how she learned to move through them and emerge relatively sane after her husband's long, tortuous illness and death from cancer.

Here is a short essay from Publisher's Weekly that Sheehy wrote about why she writes and about writing the book, "Passages in Caregiving."
