A remarkably frank, deeply moving, and inspiring memoir by Jai Pausch, whose husband, Randy, wrote the bestseller The Last Lecture while battling pancreatic cancer.
Jai is such a giver that she often forgets to take care of herself, Randy Pausch wrote about his wife. Jai knows that shell have to give herself permission to make herself a priority.
InDream New Dreams,Jai Pausch shares her own story for the first time: her emotional journey from wife and mother to full-time caregiver, shuttling between her three young children and Randys bedside as he sought treatment far from home; and then to widow and single parent, fighting to preserve a sense of stability for her family, while coping with her own grief and the challenges of running a household without a partner.
Jai paints a vivid, honest portrait of a vital, challenging relationship between two strong people who faced a grim prognosis and the self-sacrificing decisions it often required. As she faced life without the husband she called her magic man, Jai learned to make herself a priority to create a new life of hope and happinessas she puts it, to feel a spark of my own magic beginning to flicker.
Dream New Dreams is a powerful story of grief, healing, and newfound independence. With advice artfully woven into an intimate, beautifully written narrative,Jais story will inspire not only the legions of readers who madeThe Last Lecturea bestseller, but also those who are embarking on a journey of loss and renewal themselves.
