Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The doctor's diagnosis for April Lancaster is not good. April has a brain tumor which cannot be operated on. She's only 18, and her future is uncertain. But when she meets Mark Gianni, a 21-year-old with a passion for car racing, things change.



Mark is handsome and charming--and has cystic fibrosis. Despite herself, April falls completely in love with him. April  says yes when Mark asks her to marry him. But a racing accident aggravates Mark's CF, and April must make a decision that will change the course of her life forever.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Once they were in the privacy of her room, Chris took her in his arms and kissed her.  "I hate to leave you for a whole week." The soccer team was playing a tournament in Pennsylvania over the break.

"Go have a good time.  But not too good a time."

He stayed for another hour before he kissed her goodbye.

Alone, she felt the gloom return.  It would be another couple of hours before her parents would arrive.  Stop acting like a baby, she told herself.  This isn't like before.  You're seventeen now, not five.

She was sitting up in her bed clicking through the TV channels with the remote control when someone rapped on her door.  "Come in," she called.

The door slowly opened, and the boy from the rec room stood there.  "Hi," he said with a sunny grin.

"Do I know you?" she asked.

"Mark Gianni." He held out his hand.

She took it cautiously.  His grip was warm, his palm rough.  He was tall and had curling dark brown hair and intense deep brown eyes.  But Kelli had been right.  He was thin, almost gaunt.  "And you're here because...?" She allowed the sentence to trail.

"Because I want you to know that you're the most beautiful girl I've ever seen.  And I thought I should introduce myself.  I mean, we should get to know each other.  Since you're the girl I intend to marry."

More About the Author

I was born in Philadelphia PA, grew up (mostly) in Hialeah FL, graduated from the University of South Florida, Tampa FL (go Bulls!) and currently live in Chattanooga TN---I'm an American citizen by birth, and Southern by the grace of God.

I have a brother, three years younger, married, and mathematically gifted. I am totally without math skills.

The books I write, the topics and subject matter, grew out of my firstborn son's diagnosis of diabetes at age 3.
Infinite reward that comes to me from my work.... when a grown reader lets me know that reading my books inspired her to seek a profession that helps others. I have wonderful letters saying, "Today I graduated from nursing/medical school."

Now that's a gift of joy!

This was the first book that I read by Lurlene McDaniel, and I picked it up totally by chance. But I am so glad I did. If you're reading this review right now, you probably know a little something about Lurlene McDaniel. First of all, her books are tearjerkers, there's no way around it. But they are extremly well written and make you feel almost every emotion known to man. And they are touching. So reader, you know Ms. McDaniel, and my advice to you is read this book. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you fall completely in love.
If you liked this book, try Don't Die My Love, Saving Jessica, The Girl Death Left Behind, all the One Last Wish books and The Legacy: Making Wishes Come True- all by Lurlene McDaniel
If you're a romantic teen like me, I suggest all of Julie Garwood's books Whitney, My Love; Paradise; Until You; Almost Heaven; Perfect by Judith McNaught The Heiress by Jude Devoraux All of Amanda Quick's (AKA Jane Ayne Krentz) books
Happy Readings :)

When April Lancaster meets Mark, she learns that love is one tough lession in life. Just likein most of Lurlene McDaniel's books, the main character is ill or in love with someone ill, in thiscase, the character faces both. April is diagnoised with high-grade astrocytoma- a brain tumor- and to herlife is over. She feels so alone and scared, until she meets Mark, a boy who is diagnoised with a fataldisease called cystic fibrosis. No matter how hard she trys no to, she ends up falling head over heels madly in lovewith Mark. Mark teaches her how to live life one minute at a time. He shows her how to never life get you down.He gives her a good time and life seems so perfect. But Mark lives in a whole different world from April, in a world of therapy, medicine,

When I was first drawn to this book, it was shortely after I had lost my own boyfriend to cystic fibrosis. What stunned me most was reading the very end. It was as if Lurlene McDaniel had written my own story! Just three months before this book was published, I had watched my own boyfriend suffer painfully from CF and the day before his death, we were united in marriage in ICU. It was absolutely heart-wrenching but beautiful all the same. So you can imagine my shock and suprise when I found this book on the bookshelves of stores, I was literally speechless. It's a beautiful story I would recommand to everyone. It's a story that resembles my own life.

I really liked the book "Till Death Do Us Part" by Lurlene McDaniel. It was very emotional and touching. I really think its an award winning novel in the future. I love to read, and I'm sure I'll read this book again. After I read this book, I ran to the library to check out what happens next to April Lancaster in "For Better, For Worse, Forever"

Minas Boyadzhyan Period 6, English December 2, 2000 Topic #4 Till Death Do Us Part The novel I chose to read was titled Till Death Do Us Part by Lurlene McDaniel. This was the first book I had ever read from the author Lurlene McDaniel and I was very pleased because it was a terrific book. This novel contains two hundred and three pages. After completing this novel in only a matter of one night, I have to say that this is a great book to read, well at least it was for me and hopefully it will be for others also. There are many reasons why this book is such a good book to read and one of the most important reasons is that the author Lurlene McDaniel keeps you interested in the story. This book had many strengths but one of the main strengths was that the author keeps you interested in the book because this story was a page turner. I have read many books and this book was the most unique one due to many reasons. While reading this book I realized that anyone of us could have had the same sickness as one of the main characters did in this novel. This book is excellent for teenagers because it teaches them that it is not the outside of a person that counts but it is their innersole. Another strength in this story was that it was well written and very well explained, It had great description of characters and their roles in the novel. The reason this book is so strengthful is because it contains the expression of love, sadness, and frightens all in one novel. Although this story had many strengths, it also had a few weaknesses. One of the weaknesses was that this novel mainly focused on love and for some of us love just isn't what makes the perfect book. For me love is also not the ingredient that makes it good to read. This book also needs to contain some actions to keep the reader interested.Read more ›

The story begins when April Lancaster is in the hospital for constant severe headaches. She meets a man named Mark Gianni, who has cystic fibrosis. He immediately likes April when he first sets eyes on her. But April is hesitant because she already has a boyfriend, the soccer coach from her school. Meanwhile, April learns that she has a reoccurrence of what happened to her five years ago, an enlarging brain tumor. She undergoes treatment while seeing Mark more and more. She goes out with him to restaurants, to the car races that he drives in, etc. They fall deeper in love as time goes on. Soon, April finds out that her tumor is dormant but the treatment hasn't shrunk it at all. She is deeply upset but Mark is the only one who can help her. He asks April to marry him and she agrees. But will their dream of living a "normal" life together come true? Read this very touching and well-written story to find out. It was one of the best books I have read.
