About the Book
When Lorna Scott married her high school sweetheart, she believed they would live a life of happily ever after. Go off on a honeymoon, raise a couple of children, buy a house or two, and live into their golden years basking in all the memories they created together.But that dream was cut short when her husband Callum was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at the age of forty-four.
In Walking the Journey Together…Alone, Lorna shares the trials and tribulations she experienced as a caregiver––juggling the demands of a terminally ill husband, her children’s needs, and her career responsibilities. Over a period of six years, she learned valuable lessons, particularly those on giving herself a little bit of her own attention and learning to ask for help.
Additionally––and perhaps most importantly–– in the years since Callum’s passing, Lorna shares how became a woman who is comfortable with her living her life as “me” rather than “we.”
