This book is a testament to love and faith. I did not come easily to this book but, once I began reading, I could not put it down. Like Jeanne, I am an ala carte Catholic. Jeanne's life with Fred shows how a few of us accept 'the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,' and stand fast. This is a great story of deep love and deeper faith. This is the story of two people who climbed a rough and rugged mountain together. It is for those of us who who may find the molehill too much. I was awed by their strength and encouraged by their staunch faith. Read this book and you will learn what it means to have a 'Fred Miller Day.'

Jeanne Selander Miller's memoir tells a remarkable story of true love rivaling any love story--true or fictional--that I have ever heard or read. Jeanne was lucky enough to find a perfect mate, a man who understood her and loved her beyond measure. It couldn't last. Not in this life at least. The story of their love for each other and their children, their thirst for a life together and their unbelieveable courage was impossible for this reader to put down. When I did come to the last page and closed the book, I carried away an affection and deep respect for Jeanne Selander Miller and Frederick Duncan Miller, the truly wonderful man she married.

Jeanne's story is triumphant. She is a lovely woman with an adoring husband and two beautiful children. Sometimes, when life seems too perfect, the worst that can happen, does indeed happen. Her husband is stricken with a hideous form of cancer and given a short time to live. The story tells us of their courage as they confront this reality, maintain and even enrich their faith, and survive for many years beyond the doctors' prediction. So many of us have had to deal with this too harsh reality, and reading their story will bring inspiration and comfort to all who read it. I strongly recommend that you read it and share it.

I received this book and read it all in one day. What a wonderful story. Even though Jeanne is retired from teaching she is still teaching her readers about love, relationships, loss and a whole host of other life lessons. This is a must read!

I just finished reading A Breath Away and I'm in tears....This is one of the most beautiful stories of love, romance and tragedy that has ever...and I mean EVER has been written. The fact that this is actually a TRUE life story just blows me away. It is beautifully written and the story rings so true to real love. TO THE AUTHOR, JEANNE SELANDER: Please tell us more about your remarkable life! Thank you for writing one of the most tender love stories, real life stories I have ever read.

Jeanne reminds us to be true to our spiritual side while dealing with life. She shares her most personal moments, revealing her total self for the reader's benefit. Honest, reflective, and thought evoking, you will laugh, cry and be reminded to keep life in perspective/keep the faith when dealing with loss.

Many wonder what True Love is...and if they could ever find it. Jeanne shows us that true love is not only attainable but she found it...and is willing to share her love with us. For anyone who wonders what love should be, read this book. And even though she didn't get to have Fred in her life for nearly long enough, it is obvious he is still in her heart. True love never dies...it is only a breath away! Collee Zematis

Mesmerizing from start to finish. I read it in one afternoon and couldn't put it down. You feel as though you are sitting with Jeanne as she tells her amazing story of life with her beloved Fred. What a gift. I cannot wait to read her next book!
