Wall Street Journal:
At a cabin on a recent weekend, Elizabeth Edwards and her 7-year-old son Jack are working on a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle, while 9-year-old daughter Emma Claire is drawing animals on a piece of paper. Returning from a five-mile run, presidential candidate John Edwards raids the refrigerator and plops down in his sweaty clothes to munch on sugar snap peas at the table.
"She isn't letting cancer dominate her life," says close friend and former campaign adviser Jennifer Palmieri. "But Elizabeth will never again have a carefree day."
Monica Langley describes the time she spent with Elizabeth Edwards, watching her balance her husband's presidential campaign, her children and her cancer.
