In this memoir, Ann Romney tells the story of her life in blunt and honest terms, showing us that even the privileged and the rich are tested. When Ann met Mitt Romney and married, she was living a fairy tale – true love, plenty of money and her piece of the American dream. It continued that way until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the late 1990s. Unprepared for this true game changer, Ann struggled with the thought of what she would become if she lost the use of her legs. Even though her husband worked to provide an unyielding foundation (we’re in this together), she fought with the fact that the dedicated caregiver had suddenly become the needy patient. In This Together artfully gives a voice to the concept of faith as Romney chronicles how a woman in full public view worked to maintain her independence in the face of a potentially crippling disease. Read by the author in a compelling “take no prisoners” performance. 7.5 hours on 6 CDs.
