Book synopsis

An inspiring true story to help you discover how to live wholeheartedly after life breaks your heart.

Eight years ago, Kathy’s world was shattered when her healthy husband, Charlie, suffered a catastrophic heart attack. Although he was miraculously still alive, there could be no return to normal living because the cause was a rare, incurable disease. In The Last Ordinary Hour, Kathy shares how they learned to live in radical uncertainty and how you can find hope even when medical science can offer no assurances.
