The story she said he was born to write.

Her story. His story. The love story of Joey and Rory.

By inviting so many into the final months of Joey's life as she battled cancer, Joey and Rory Feek captured hearts around the world with how they handled the diagnosis; the inspiring, simple way they chose to live; and how they loved each other every step of the way. But there is far more to the story.

"My life is very ordinary," says Rory. "On the surface, it is not very special. If you looked at it, day to day, it wouldn't seem like much. But when you look at it in a bigger context--as part of a larger story--you start to see the magic that is on the pages of the book that is my life. And the more you look, the more you see. Or, at least, I do."

In this vulnerable book, he takes us for the first time into his own challenging life story and what it was like growing up in rural America with little money and even less family stability.

This is the story of a man searching for meaning and security in a world that offered neither. And it's the story of a man who finally gives it all to a power higher than himself and soon meets a young woman who will change his heart forever.

In This Life I Live, Rory Feek helps us not only to connect more fully to his and Joey's story but also to our own journeys. He shows what can happen when we are fully open in life's key moments, whether when meeting our life companion or tackling an unexpected tragedy. He also gives never-before-revealed details on their life together and what he calls "the long goodbye," the blessing of being able to know that life is going to end and taking advantage of it. Rory shows how we are all actually there already and how we can learn to live that way every day.

A gifted man from nowhere and everywhere in search of something to believe in. A young woman from the Midwest with an angelic voice and deep roots that just needed a place to be planted. This is their story. Two hearts that found each other and touched millions of other hearts along the way.

I am not someone who followed this couple nor their music but knew vaguely​ of them. I appreciated the authors honesty in his own life and being so open to share his faults. I learned a few things I could change in my own life and my relationship with God and felt a few pages of inspiration. This book was all over the place and didn't really flow. It began with some childhood experiences but as it went on would switch from past to present and was difficult to follow. Sounds like a great marriage and sad to hear of her death. I give this 3 stars.
