In Sickness & In Health:
A Love Story
by Karen Propp

 *  About the book
 *  About the author

This is a book for women with men who suffer the effects of prostate cancer and men courageous enough to understand the effect they may create with the disease. It is, as the title says, a love story. Told with a rare, imaginative style, it is the account of a woman who lived for the moment but then had to struggle with her identity in new roles as a mother to a child with a bright future and a wife to a man whose sexuality has been shattered and whose future was in doubt. What she faced and learned goes far beyond prostate cancer. It is one of the most courageous, powerful, moving and best-written books that I've read.
-- Robert Young, Webmaster Phoenix5
