From the Publisher:
She charmed America with her smart, likable, down-to-earth personality as she campaigned for her husband, then vice-presidential candidate John Edwards. She inspired millions as she valiantly fought advanced breast cancer after being diagnosed only days before the 2004 election. She touched hundreds of similarly grieving families when her own son, Wade, died tragically at age sixteen in 1996. Now she shares her experiences in Saving Graces, an incandescent memoir of Edwards’ trials, tragedies, and triumphs, and of how various communities celebrated her joys and lent her steady strength and quiet hope in darker times.
In this inspiring memoir, Elizabeth Edwards shares the key experiences that shaped her life: growing up in a military family; marrying her husband, John, who became a politician and senator; the loss of her teenage son, Wade, in a car accident; and her diagnosis of and treatment for breast cancer. Through it all, she got to see a large cross-section of the American people, and to learn the importance of community. This comes through loud and clear in SAVING GRACES, as does the need to reach out to others and be open to others reaching out in return.
