When author Joyce Maynard met Jim, a successful Bay Area lawyer, they fell in love, got married, planted olive trees, and went on long bike rides. Then Jim was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and less than three years after their wedding, he died. Maynard joins us to talk about "The Best of Us: A Memoir," a reflection on how she got through the pain of final heartbreak.
