SEDONA, Ariz.—"Ten Days in January: A Journey," a new book by Theodore Grussing, explores how important it is for caregivers to take time off, and how richly satisfying it can be to share details of that experience with the people being tended. Living with disabilities, Grussing suggests, can be difficult for couples, but does not mean they cannot still experience love, fun and new adventures.
A news release from Booksurge Publishing, the company which is publishing "Ten Days in January: A Journey," outlines the book, and notes that when Grussing’s wife Corky came down with multiple sclerosis, the couple did not let the disability stop them. But being a full-time caretaker for his wife was sometimes so overwhelming that Grussing decided to take a respite break from his responsibilities. Crisscrossing the country in planes and trains, Grussing found himself wanting to share his journey with his wife and with friends, so he created a photo journal of his experiences. Filled with pictures and warm commentary, "Ten Days in January: A Journey" is both a portrait of an incredible marriage and a positive look at how disability can actually offer new and different opportunities in life.
A source at Booksurge characterizes the work as, "A wonderful book for both caretakers and those dealing with disabilities. Deeply insightful and beautifully written, "Ten Days in January: A Journey" takes a new, more positive look at chronic illness."
"Ten Days in January: A Journey" is available for sale online at Amazon.com, BookSurge.com, and through additional wholesale and retail channels worldwide.
