A compelling story - a lesson in hope

What a compelling read! This book offers story and learning all in the same package. The story will touch your heart - the vibrant young woman who survives an unthinkable tragedy. She is supported by an adoring husband who, shaken to his core by the near-death events, emerges as her champion and mainstay. The learning comes as insight into the fragility of life, the uncertainty of science and the labyrinth of American healthcare as seen through the eyes of an Aussie. But even more than being just a story or insight into science, this is a book of hope, great love and awareness. It is a call to know more about sudden cardiac arrest because we never know when we might be called to be heroes. - By Sara C. Smith (Fort Worth, TX)

Could not put this book down

As I sat down to read this book, I thought I would spend 15 minutes on it, but instead it captured me and I couldn't put it down! For anyone who knows of someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest, OR anyone who has almost lost a loved one to ANY sudden, unexplained medical occurence or accident. I laughed and I cried...sometimes on the same page!!! A must read. - By Joan C. (White Plains, NY)

A must buy for scd survivors or their family

A wonderful story of an emotional event!!! I couldn't put the book down. Being a survivor, it was very interesting to hear the story from the spouse's eyes. Some times I was reading through my tears. I remember living so many of those moments. It was so insightful & written wonderfully. - Linda Dickson, an SCA survivor

A Heart Too Good to Die

This book brought tears to my eyes, as I went thru the same things as Carolyn did with her arrest. It gives me a sense of relief and comfort to know someone else out there that had the same experience as myself. I thank Jeremy for putting it into a story and sharing it with the world. I only wish I would have found this book sooner, as it is helping with my healing process from my arrest 10 years ago. Jeremy's book has given me comfort to know that I am not alone. - By Barbara C (Annapolis, Maryland)
