When Angela and her husband Arthur were married later in life, she thought their new life would be smooth sailing into the sunset. Then her husband had a tragic motorcycle accident and everything changed. The next few years presented many trials and tribulations, including a separation for 13 months in which their relationship was tested. Then Angela began writing a book about her experiences, in order to help others.
“Life is not a straight line, and we had many setbacks. Arthur was in and out of hospitals. I was working full time. And I became emotionally drained and occasionally had to put the book on the shelf.“
Listen as we discuss Angela’s book “Better Than Before: One Couples Journey After A Tragic Accident” and her personal story on how they made it through tough times to come out the other side better than before. Angela discusses her advice to other caregivers, and also gives some insights to prospective authors out there on how you can share your own journey via publishing.
