I had been wanting to read this since it came out and when I found the audiobook on sale, I couldn’t resist.

The Time of My Life is the story of Patrick Swayze’s journey through dance and acting, meeting his beautiful wife, the struggles and pain of repetitive injuries, and then the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.

The journey through the life of Swayze, hearing about how he accomplished so much, persevered, set new goals and dreams despite the constant fear that his next injury could be the end.

The story was so personal and heartfelt, listening to husband and wife tell the story of their life, their own words and voice, reading letters from the past, traveling, working through fights and problems and coming out on the other side stronger than ever before. There was so much courage in their life that one can only hope to be as strong as they were and are.
