In a career spanning more than thirty years, Patrick Swayze has made a name for himself on the stage, the screen, and television. Known for his versatility, passion and fearlessness, he’s become one of our most beloved actors.

But in February 2008 Patrick announced he had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. Always a fighter, he refused to let the disease bring him to his knees, and his bravery has inspired both his legion of fans and cancer patients everywhere. Yet this memoir, written with wisdom and heart, recounts much more than his bout with cancer. In vivid detail Patrick describes his Texas upbringing, his personal struggles, his rise to fame with North and South, his commercial breakthroughs in Dirty Dancing and Ghost, and the soul mate who stood by his side through it all: his wife, writer and director Lisa Niemi.

A behind-the-scenes look at a Hollywood life and a remarkable love, this memoir is both entertainment and inspiration. Patrick and Lisa’s marriage is a journey of two lives intertwined and lived as one—throughout their years in Hollywood and at home on their working ranch outside Los Angeles, and culminating in the hope and wisdom they’ve imparted to all who know them. This book will open the door for families, individuals, and husbands and wives to grow, bond, and discover entirely new levels of love and sharing, proving that life shouldn’t be lived as a series of endings but rather as the beginning of greater strength and love.

    " Good book - okay. Interesting reading his words about his life. I appreciated his candor. He shared some pretty private things about he and his wife and their relationship that were quite moving. "

    " I've been a fan since 'North and South' and 'Dirty Dancing' days and so was looking forward to reading this. It didn't disappoint. Although it was really poignant and bittersweet to read as Patrick is no longer here, it was an enjoyable, interesting and inspirational autobiography. I found out a lot i didn't know eg regarding all the injuries he suffered and the pain he had to live with as a result. I'm surprised he could walk, let alone dance! And the drinking and depression, thwarted dreams and family traumas. However he battled and recovered from all of this and it seems so cruel that he was diagnosed with cancer when he was at such a good place in his life. Such a brave man. It's also a love story. Through all the ups and downs he had the support of his wife, Lisa - they'd been married for 34 years - she must feel lost without him. "
