Joe Oa€™Brien is a forty-three-year-old police officer from the Irish Catholic neighborhood of Charlestown, Massachusetts. A devoted husband, proud father of four children in their twenties, and respected officer, Joe begins experiencing bouts of disorganized thinking, uncharacteristic temper outbursts, and strange, involuntary movements. He initially attributes these episodes to the stress of his job, but as these symptoms worsen, he agrees to see a neurologist and is handed a diagnosis that will change his and his familya€™s lives forever: Huntingtona€™s disease. Huntingtona€™s is a lethal neurodegenerative disease with no treatment and no cure, and each of Joea€™s four children has a 50 percent chance of inheriting their fathera€™s disease. While watching her potential future in her fathera€™s escalating symptoms, twenty-one-year-old daughter Katie struggles with the questions this test imposes on her young adult life. As Joea€™s symptoms worsen and hea€™s eventually stripped of his badge and more, Joe struggles to maintain hope and a sense of purpose, while Katie and her siblings must find the courage to either live a life a€œat riska€ or learn their fate. Praised for writing that a€œexplores the resilience of the human spirita€ (San Francisco Chronicle), Lisa Genova has once again delivered a novel as powerful and unforgettable as the human insights at its core.A New York Times bestseller a–o A Library Journal Best Books of 2015 Pick a–o A St. Louis Post-Dispatch Best Books of 2015 Pick a–oA GoodReads Top Ten Fiction Book of 2015 a–o A People Magazine Great Read From New York Times bestselling ...
