Jayne Doxtater was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba and currently resides in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. A business owner and esthetician of 40 years, she is now semi-retired and loves spending time outdoors. A self-proclaimed tree hugger and chocolate lover, Jayne is the proud nana of twin granddaughters and a grand puppy. In addition to finding solace in nature, she loves to curl up with a good book!

"I wrote this book as a method of healing, not only for myself but also for others who have experienced different kinds of loss. This story isn’t something I’ve often seen nor heard: the journey alongside a person who is transitioning, from the point of view of the family, or in my case, the partner. My intention was to honestly recount my experiences, and tell my story from a place of love."
