“This book is exemplary in structure, organization, and pacing. This story is one that is seldom told and helps to empathize with the plight of first responders. The voice is spot-on and wise and grounded but also with grace and humor and a willingness to tell like it is.”

The Reader's Perspective

“A gritty and gut-wrenching look into the uncensored life of a first responder family dealing with both mental illness and posttraumatic stress injury. This book is not only a must-read for all first responders, but for those who know and love them. It takes absolute strength and courage to show such vulnerability and unadulterated openness.”
Sgt. Michael Sugrue, RET.
Former Capt., USAF Special Forces, co-author of Relentless Courage: Winning the Battle Against Frontline Trauma
"I do not have the words to describe how sensitive and moving Living with Mr. Fahrenheit is, or how deeply the book affected me. The author candidly shares the profound impact her husband’s mental illness had on family dynamics, including the isolation, fear, disruption, and losses his condition brought. Ms. Beecher is to be commended for her courage in the sharing of her story.”
Elizabeth Frederick
Nurse Practitioner, Internal Medicine
“Living with Mr. Fahrenheit is like strapping into an emotional rollercoaster. Beecher recounts the helplessness, heartache, and terror of living with a loved one’s mental illness, and she does it with humor, grace, and humility. An inspirational story of one family’s struggle to survive and thrive despite overwhelming odds. Incredible. One of the best debuts I’ve read.”
