Oh, thank you Donald Hall, for sharing these precious days and moments with unknown myriads who also loved your wife, Jane, from a distance, love at first poem.

Heartbreaking and beautiful. I can only hope that I one day have this kind of love to share with someone. Thank you for sharing these precious days of your life with us, Donald.

I have a short attention span and don't like to read about dying, yet this 11-day memoir held me rapt from the first word to the last. Such a deep abiding devotion between two human beings, detailed with such grace and eloquence, affirms life at a time when events all around us attempt to cheapen the very concept.
