"A beautifully woven, suspenseful love story with a stunning victory, reminding us of the resilience of the human spirit, and that anything is possible with a loving tribe."--Marcia Gay Harden, Academy Award-winning actress and author of The Seasons of My Mother

"A bestselling historical novelist's account of how she survived the harrowing year following her young husband's unexpected stroke . . . The strength of this end-of-innocence book lies in its demystification of the idea that strokes only occur in older people. . . . [A] heartfelt account of dedication and devotion."--Kirkus Reviews

"This is the kind of book that reminds us to slow down, to take stock of our good fortune and the small, everyday blessings we mostly take for granted as we rush through each day."--from the foreword by Lee Woodruff, #1 New York Times bestselling author of In an Instant

"Beauty in the Broken Places is inspiring not only as a story about perseverance through unexpected trauma, but as a magnificent love story about what it truly means to live the vows 'for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health.' If you have ever feared suffering, this book will give you fortitude and courage. Life involves the unexpected co-mingling of sorrow and joy. This book will lift you upward and onward."--Sheila Weber, founder of National Marriage Week USA and co-founder of New York Fellowship
