A heartfelt memoir about life after heart disease. Food writer Cecily Ross and her husband, Basil Guinane, are in love with each other and with food. But when Basil is forced to undergo an emergency quadruple bypass at the age of forty-four, he and Cecily have to evaluate their eating habits and their lifestyle. With eight in ten Canadians at risk of heart disease, it has never been more important to spread the message of heart health awareness and healthy eating. Love in the Time of Cholesterol gives voice to the millions of men and women whose lives have been changed as a result of a partner’s illness. This touching, informative, and funny memoir follows Cecily and Basil as they learn to adjust to life after his heart surgery—and to a new definition of comfort food. Complete with delicious, heart-friendly recipes that Cecily and Basil have discovered along their journey, Love in the Time of Cholesterol is a charming story of recovery and a couple’s new appreciation of healthy eating.
