Author’s have the ability to reach through a book, through their words and grab a readers heart, mind and soul. To touch them in ways that envoke humor, joy, pain, tears and a verity of other emotions. In Author Jason Nichols book ‘In Sickness and In Health’ we readers are touched by a Master’s Hand.
We are given the great pleasure of meeting and come to love two men, their children, friends and family in such a intimate way that we feel we are part of their lives. When each tragedy happens, with each joyous moment arrives it as if it has happened to us, to our family, to our friends. But more importantly, we are shown that people with HIV/AIDS not only want to be loved like everyone else, but that there are people out there that will love them regardless of, and sometimes in spite of it.
There is so much I want to say about this book, about how it made me laugh, how it made me get mad, how it made me cry, but the most important thing I can say about it is that you HAVE to read it to understand any of that.
Yes, there were some parts that were a little confusing and disjointed. And there were a few editing/proofing errors, but nothing in life is perfect. Life is not perfect. But this book, this book is really very close to perfect in the story it tells. And I sincerely hope that this is not the last of Jason’s voice we hear, because from what I read in the pages of this book, this man had a lot more to say.
