A world-renowned cancer specialist, Dr. Winawer had never recommended alternative treatments to his patients. Then his wife was diagnosed with cancer, and even the most advanced tools of modern medicine could only offer her months to live. Faced with the imminence of her death, they decided to explore the world of alternative medicine. Compassionate and brilliantly written, this is as much a story about the love between a husband and his dying wife, as it is a glimpse into the mind of a doctor who is questioning all that he once took for granted about medicine.
