Praise for Wherever You Are

“Wherever You Are answers the question ‘What makes a life worth living?’ […]A beautifully written love story by a courageous woman who finds the capacity to experience joy and love in the face of devastating loss.”
– Maureen Murdock, author of Unreliable Truth: On Memoir and Memory

“…a heartwarming reminder of love, commitment, marriage and how to make your way forward after the unimaginable. Lim’s honest prose and compelling story… is a wonderful account of all of the emotions, heartbreak, acceptance and ultimately small joys that come with a ‘slowed down life.’ As life moves forward for all of us, the lesson is to continually accept the new shape of our lives.”
– Lee Woodruff, author of In An Instant: A Family’s Journey of Love and Healing

“I can’t get this story out of my head. It haunts me. It makes me wonder, Would I be that brave? That strong? That full of joy?”
– Jennie Nash, Founder and Chief Creative Officer,

“If you’re a caregiver for someone who has life changing health issues, or know a caregiver, grab this book. With depth and brutal honesty, Cynthia Lim shares her journey and hard-won lessons about life after her husband’s heart attack and resulting brain injury. In this beautifully written memoir she learns gratitude…. Ultimately this is a love story; a marriage and a family that has held fast in spite of overwhelming challenges.”
– Barbara Abercrombie, author of A Year of Writing Dangerously and Kicking in the Wall
