Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When CBS News Correspondent Barry Petersen married the love of his life twenty-five years ago, he never thought his vow, “until death do us part,” would have an expiration date. But Early Onset Alzheimer's claimed Jan Petersen, Barrys beautiful wife, at 55, leaving her unable to remember Barry or their life together.

Synopsis:

Imagine hearing these words: She has Alzheimer's. Now imagine that she is vibrant, active, loving, healthy...and just 55. Acclaimed CBS News reporter Barry Petersen, writes about hearing the unimaginable: what it meant, what it still means, what he did--and didn't do--and how this beautiful love story needs to be read by the thousands of families who have already heard that same devastating diagnosis...EARLY ONSET ALZHEIMER'S. Jan's Story is a full, rich story of two people--and thousands like them--for whom forever suddenly and terrifyingly has an expiration date. Barry Petersen is a long-time, award-winning TV journalist...but was not even slightly prepared for what happened to his darling wife, Jan.

Synopsis:

CBS News correspondent Barry Petersen tells the tender story of his wife's battle with Early Onset Alzheimer's.

About the Author

Multiple Emmy-Award-winner Barry Petersen has covered wars, genocide, interviewed dozens of stars, and several Bosnian War Crimes Tribunal suspects. Barry earned one of his Emmys for reporting the Siege of Sarajevo for CBS Sunday Morning. He shared both Peabody and DuPont Awards for being a part of the CBS News Radio coverage of the Tiananmen Square uprising in 1989, and an Edward R. Murrow award for, of all things, sports writing for a story on baseball coming to Beijing. One report he could have never prepared himself for, however, is when his wife, Jan, was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's at the age of 55.

Barry works for CBS News and makes his home in Denver, Colorado, where he wrote Jan's Story.
