Staff Review: "Life's That Way" by Jim Beaver


Life's That Way is a beautiful and moving memoir by Jim Beaver, the talented actor who I came to know from the TV series Supernatural. His memoir is a heartbreaking, touching, but also uplifting recounting of his wife's battle with cancer and daughter's battle with autism. Told through the heart-wrenching emails Jim Beaver sent to their family and friends, he writes with a strength and beauty that astounded me. I couldn't stop reading. Jim Beaver is an extremely talented writer, whose story holds so many truths and lessons for its readers.
