Product Overview

Read by Mark Kelly with a final chapter read by Gabrielle Giffords.

As individuals, congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, showed Americans how optimism, an adventurous spirit, and a call to service can help change the world. As a couple, they became a national example of the healing power to be found in deeply shared love and courage. Their arrival in the world spotlight came under the worst of circumstances. On January 8, 2011, while meeting with her constituents in Tucson, Arizona, Gabby was the victim of an assassination attempt that left six people dead and thirteen wounded. Gabby was shot in the head; doctors called her survival ?miraculous.?
As the nation grieved and sought to understand the attack, Gabby remained in private, focused on her against-all-odds recovery. Mark spent every possible moment by her side, as he also prepared for his final mission as commander of space shuttle Endeavour.
Now, as Gabby?s health continues to improve, the couple is sharing their remarkable untold story. Intimate, inspiring, and unforgettably moving,Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope provides an unflinching look at the overwhelming challenges of brain injury and the responsibilities that fall to a loving spouse who wants the best possible treatment for his wife. Told in Mark?s voice and from Gabby?s heart, the book also chronicles the lives that brought these two extraordinary people together?their humor, their ambitions, their sense of duty, their long-distance marriage, and their desire for family.
