Cuenin shares her stories hiking in Seward and Juneau’s mountains, living aboard a tugboat in Sitka and being in the company of bears. An experienced hospice nurse and an avid hiker and skier, Cuenin suddenly found herselfunable to catch her breath. After an emergency room exam
and treatment for a collapsed lung, she was told she was facing an untreatable disease that will
rob her of all her breath.
With humor and brutal honesty, Cuenin shares her responses to pain and loss of an active life.
“This book is poignant and uplifting, sad and hopeful. It is a story of courage and love, wonder
and anger. It is beautifully writtena nd will make you cry, laugh, and wonder how in the world the
universe works,” wrote one Amazon reviewer.
Two copies of Cuenin's books are at the Library front desk for Friends members to check out, or can be available at our local book store, Cover to Cover, downtown Seward.
