This review and others can be found on BW Book ReviewsThis book took me a long time to listen to because it was interrupted by my finals No work means no listening to books Even though it was good I couldn t listen to it on my free time thanks to being a responsible college student and doing this dreadful thing called studying Warn your kids about it It can get pretty terrifyingAs I said this was a good book It was fun and I really enjoyed how it was read Just very upbeat and light most of the time When this book focuses on a family illness that is currently untreatable and has killed everyone who has it the author s father uncle and other people that s really impressive It s a very light book It s fun to read or listen to because it simply flows so wellStarting in the 90s this book chronicles a family illness It begins with Joselin s father a doctor who gets ill Very ill I think ill is an understatement to it Then as he gets worse then it comes out that other people in his family had the same symptoms that he does They also died of this mystery disease They don t know what it is but know that everyone who has had it has a heart murmur testing people in the family for itAt times it was heavy with technical terms but Joselin explained them perfectly I ve taken enough classes and read enough books to know most of the terms She just told it what it is in non doctor speak It s accessible to anyone really All you have to know is the basics and anything beyond it she explains Hell even the basics get explainedIt largely focuses on Joselin s experiences She s not a doctor after all She s a woman who watched various members of her family get sick and die It s focused on her experience of this and the stages of grief that she went through While I m not sure I would have liked Joselin as a person for a good part of the story I could appreciate it She reacted in a way people only can Still hearing about her healing process didn t uite interest me as much as hearing the journey of discovery about their disorderAll in all a good book that had very minor flaws for me
