Book Description

January 2010
Lacey Wilson's whole life is a courageous battle. She overcomes neglect in childhood and abuse in her first marriage to achieve fame and fortune as a popular author, and finds true love and happiness with wealthy entrepreneur, Jake Edmonds. Then cancer strikes. Lacey believes that people should be able to die at home, with assistance if they wish, rather than be forced to suffer the pain and indignity of a prolonged death. Her beloved daughter, Jana, will help her. But her doctor does not approve. To complicate matters, Jana and the doctor are in love. Will Lacey get her wish?

Power over one's mortality is something few truly have. "A Courageous Battle" tells the story of Lacey Wilson, a woman facing cancer after a lifetime of pain. Wanting to end the pain by her own hand, she seeks to end her own life before the cancer does it for her.

"A Courageous Battle" asks many intriguing questions, proving a poignant and powerful read, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading Feb. 3 2010
By Derek J. Humphry - Published on Amazon.com
The first half of this most readable novel is about life and love, the second part about love and death. An extraordinary story, enjoyable throughout even if -- inevitably -- sad at the end.
5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning insights into end-of-life choices Sept. 17 2010
By Richard N. Côté - Published on Amazon.com
This profoundly insightful and empathic novel takes the reader deep inside the heart and mind of a woman facing the ultimate challenge: a ghastly, drawn-out death by unstoppable cancer. After all medical avenues of healing and pain control have been exhausted, terminally ill Lacey Wilson wants to die with dignity, at home, surrounded by her loved ones--at the time of her own choosing. Because legal, physician-hastened death is banned in her native Canada, she and her daughter, Jana, take a huge risk: a dangerous, hair-raising trip to Tijuana to obtain the world's most sought-after self-deliverance drug, Nembutal. This emotionally wrenching, action-packed novel is drawn from a long list of real-life experiences related to the author. It frames not only the immensely painful path that many dying people must follow to achieve death with dignity, but demonstrates why legal reform permitting physician-hastened death (already a reality in Oregon, in Washington state, and Montana, as welll as in The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Switzerland) is so desperately needed. Richard N. Côté, author of In Search of Gentle Death: The Fight for Your Right to Die with Dignity (Corinthian Books, 2011).
