ABOUT THE BOOK
This is the true story of a song.
Don Feagin wrote the words and Barron Ryan wrote the music. But this wasn’t your average collaboration. That’s because Don died in 1981—six years before Barron was even born.
As a young songwriter and composer, Don Feagin wrote music that would be heard around the world. But his favorite person to write for was his wife, Linda. The two were building a beautiful life together, but Don was living on borrowed time. They both knew that his disease, cystic fibrosis, would take him from this world far too soon.
When Don died, Linda thought she had heard all the songs he would ever write
. . . until a chance encounter paved a path to bring his lyrics and legacy back to life.
Honey, If It Wasn’t For You is a love song, written for a wife, that a husband could no longer sing. It’s also a poignant tale of love and loss that shares the power of music to connect us with the ones we cherish—even after they’re gone.
