Beauty in the Broken Places:
A Memoir of Love, Faith, and Resilience
By Allison Pataki
Pataki describes how, while on a vacation during her pregnancy, her healthy 35-year-old husband suffered a rare, life-threatening stroke that placed everything they had worked for in jeopardy. She coped by writing him daily letters that helped her to make sense of the challenges and fall in love with him all over again. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly calls this "powerful and immersive."
