Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely inspiring book !! I definitely recommend this book to my friends and relatives who had experienced to be a caregiver. Some of them have cared for their own family who had been sick and being a family caregiver was tough. Much more for a person who came from other country like Annie Chua who took care of other family and leave her children behind in order to give them a good life. I admire caregivers because it's an emotionally and physically draining job. I gave 5 star rating because I enjoyed the story and touched my heart.
