Cease: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Desire - Toronto Star

By Sarah Murdoch

Cease presents an unusually intimate look inside a relationship. The author and her much older partner, Cec Kayso, had been together for more than eight years when Kayso learns she has terminal cancer, around the same time Loeppky is contemplating leaving her and the Alberta farm they worked together. This is a close-up look at Kayso’s brutal final three weeks, intercut with the story of the two women’s life together.
