The fact that I purchased this book as a publisher's remainder if perhaps indicative that others, including the Kindle review, are having problems in reading the full story. Certainly I did not arrive at a clear understanding of the illness, the police investigation and the court case as the book was defeated by detail.

It seems too that the police technique is to defeat a suspect by getting detail and then confusing the suspect!

I was really angry about the police interviews and would hate to think of my wife going through a similar experience as we have both signed "Living Wills" with do not resuscitate instructions.

Would like to have had better advice in the book about the legal side rather than the intimate details of the illness.

My feeling would be that my wife would be innocent of any crime. Would it have been best for Jill to have made a simple statement that she was not guilty of any of the alleged offences for which she was arrested by the police and followed the "no comment" procedure adopted by seasoned criminals. Certainly at my age I would have inconsistences in any long drawn out interviews such as given to Jill and they would arise through lack of memory on detail. Wonder why Jill's solicitor did not intervene. In similar circumstances could one offer the police a statement prepared with the help of your own solicitor after the distress of the immediate situation was resolved?

This story is fact based and written exceedingly well with strong characters, a true story and one which happens all to often with this awful illness.
It shows the way the police are relentless in trying to get the answers they want to hear to make their case easier for them.
There is still not enough research being done to help the hundreds of people suffering from this condition.
This story touched my heart as I to suffer from M.E. I could sympathise with every pain he felt and the amount of medication you are constantly trying, hoping to get some relief.
Five stars for a wonderful story, that I would recommend every sufferer, carer, family member and friend read to help you understand just a little bit what this illness does to you.

I first heard the author interviewed on the radio, and downloaded it as I was moved by her story. She described it first and foremost as a love story, and it's important to remember that if you read the book, as it successfully fulfils that genre placement. She has a fluid and enthralling way of writing descriptive prose, and at no time in the narrative did I sense self-pity. On the downside, it seemed that about half of the book is a straight unedited transcript of the interviews with the police, which often struggled to hold my attention (although I recognise that it is probably the best device for conveying critical information to the reader). I also came away feeling that I didn't fully understand or appreciate her late husband's condition, and was confused by (mini-spoiler alert!) his being able to drive, for example, when we had been given the impression that he was immobilised by the acute pain. This may be intentional, the author fulfilling her objective of making this a love story rather than a medical textbook, yet I still felt slightly uninformed by the time I finished the book. Despite that misgiving, this book is worth a read if love stories is your preferred genre.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very engaging 7 Sept. 2012
By Koo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When flicking through this book, it seemed interesting and down-to-earth. I am drawn to books about adversity and the strength of the human spirit.

While I admire the author and her strength given what she went through and the pain she would have experienced, perhaps it is only my mindset, but I am not finding the book particularly engaging reading.

I have reached halfway, and have decided to put it to one side, and give it another go when perhaps my headspace is different. At that point, my perception may be different, in which case I will update this review, but right now I am finding the book a tad tedious.
