From the Kirkus Review I received last April:
Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s is a story more about the power of hope than the wages of Huntington’s—a pre-symptomatic test for the disease eventually hit the market, but John refused to take it. As he explained: “I’d rather live my life with the hope I don’t have the mutated gene than find out I do.”
Crutcher-Marin writes affectingly about the way her marriage was actually fortified by its precariousness—she learned to love more deeply in the shadow of her husband’s mortality. She also tenderly portrays the plight of his sisters—beleaguered not only by the deadly genetic inheritance, but also difficult childhoods stained by loneliness and abandonment.
“This is a rare treat—a true story that is as uplifting as it is heartbreaking.”
John and Therese are donating 100% of the proceeds to Huntington’s Disease organizations around the world. To purchase the book, please go to: http://www.theresecrutchermarin.com
