In her poignant new book, When All That's Left of Me Is Love: A Daughter’s Story of Letting Go, Linda Campanella provides a moving account of her last year with her mother, Nancy Sachsse, who passed away in 2009, one year and one day after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. It is the story of a daughter’s undying love for her dying mother and the inspiring account of one family’s determination to embrace life while anticipating death.

When All That's Left of Me Is Love was awarded first-place Reader Views 2012 Literary Awards in two categories and more recently was named a 2012 Nautilus Silver Award winner. The Nautilus Awards recognize books “that promote spiritual growth, conscious living and positive social change, while at the same time they stimulate the ‘imagination’ and offer the reader ‘new possibilities’ for a better life and a better world.” Previous Nautilus honorees include the Dalai Lama, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, and Mariel Hemingway.

Campanella, who resides in West Hartford, Conn., is the daughter-in-law of Marjorie and the late Domenic Campanella, longtime residents of West Harwich.
