Just Keep Breathing by Joan Scott Curtis



Just Keep Breathing is a difficult read. Not because it isn't well written but because it deals with the unexpected. The terminal illness and death of a spouse.  

Curtis's memoir chronicles her husband's battle with AIDS and her struggle to keep her family together. Her husband has been infected for over 13 years and by sheer luck, she is HIV negative. Her husband is dying and she can only stand by and watch him take his last breath. Curtis some how manages to find the strength to overcome all the obstacles that are put upon her. She is honest and open with her emotions,which make this read something that stays with you long after you've finished the book.

Grade: A
