The Heart and Soul of Caring highlights 11 unique true stories of the challenges and joys of being a caregiver for a loved one. Each story gives tribute and honor to the care receiver - to the essence of their spirit. Within the stories, you find one person's answers to some difficult questions such as: Can you help your mother find peace near end-of-life? What would you do if in an instant the life with your husband changed forever? How would you juggle having to provide care for your elder brother and sister at the same time? How would you cope if someone in your care could not communicate?

What you'll discover are the gifts and blessings that the caregivers receive: a strength of spirit, sense of purpose, giving back to one who was a great provider, and a deep love and connection that transcends time and space.

Here is what people are saying about The Heart and Soul of Caring

"I have had difficulty coping with my mother's decline and dementia. After reading 'The Heart and Soul of Caring' I have a completely new perspective. It has changed how I interact with her. Our conversations are less challenging and frustrating for both of us." ~ Randy F., Raleigh, N.C.

"I read your book on Friday! Excellent! I have been a caretaker for 3 family members and a dear friend, so I fully appreciate the topic!" ~ Sara Sgarlat, Publicist, Sgarlat Publicity

"I salute Robert Sharpe for following his heart and giving those who have been caregivers a voice that hopefully will bring a better understanding to this rewarding and challenging role. I could certainly relate to the stories told by the other contributors within the pages of 'The Heart and Soul of Caring'. My sincere hope is that if you know someone who is a caregiver, you take time to support them, reach out to them and volunteer to help them. Caregivers require love and care too and too often are reluctant to ask for help. Remember, life changes can alter your role in the blink of an eye. You too might find yourselves in need of a caregiver or facing the challenges of being a caregiver." ~ T. Allen Winn, author of The Care Giver's Son, Outside the Window Looking in
