About the Book

A blend of humor and heartache on a subject that touches us all, this true, heart-wrenching, and honest compilation of e-mails, stories, quotes, and diary entries will take you on a 148-day journey of love and loss ... the final days of the author’s husband, Tim. It gives you an intimate look into the thoughts and feelings during their cancer journey as the author opens her heart and shares her fears and hopes, joys and sorrows. An inspiring, emotional read, it will inspire you to become a better person—to live your life with more empathy and understanding, joy and gratitude. 148 Days will speak to anyone facing hardship or wanting to gain insight to help a loved one facing life’s challenges.

“There is a message here. Raw, unfiltered, and unapologetically honest, Les McCarthy opens up her personal journal and shares something sacred.”
Todd Clary, author of A Beautiful Hell
