Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This is the story of a significant life, loving and happiness despite the absent, the break, the loss.

This is the story of a man and woman, a blessed couple, who spent their time together, hand in hand. This is a song about joy, togetherness, and deep faith. This is a story of love that survives separation by illness and then death.

This is a love story. A bigger- than- life love story. This is a story about a love that is resilient and pure in the face of crisis, disappointment and unimaginable health challenges. This is a story of heroism; spirit reigning over the body and its realities.

This is a story of how the movement of life provides us with opposites and how we grow from polarities such as:

Death and Life

Darkness and Light

Spiritual Distance and Closeness

The Hidden and the Exposed

Desperation and Hope

This is a story of dedication, light, the good, grace, hope, faith, confidence and love – Always With Me.

Always With Me is an inspiring memoir about love, faith, about a couple’s dedication toward one another. The book tells the, at times heartwarming, at times heartbreaking, story of author Ariela Ben Ari and her husband Moshe.

The story is very touching, and I certainly recommend reading this for anyone who has ever dealt with the loss of a loved one. As Ariela recalls her life with her husband, and then describes her life without him, you can feel the pain very vividly. I hope that writing this book worked cathartic for the author, and that it made her feel better, even if just a little. I sincerely hope the book helped her with the mourning process, and I can imagine it will also help people who are in a similar situation.

Very touching, very tragic, and brought tears to my eyes more than once.
