Product Description
A New York Times Best Seller (#9 on the NYT Nonfiction E-Book list 8/14/13, and #17 on 4/12/14).

Eleanor Vincent raised her two daughters, Maya and Meghan, virtually as a single-parent. As a toddler, Maya was an angelic tow-head, full of life and curiosity. As a teenager, Maya was energetic and independent - and often butted heads with her mother. Maya grew up to be a high-spirited and gifted young woman. Eleanor and Maya were always close and connected, like best friends or sisters, but always also mother and daughter.

Then at age 19, Maya mounts a horse bareback on a dare, falls, and is left in a coma from which she never recovers. Eleanor's life is turned upside down as she struggles to make the painful decision about Maya's fate.

Ultimately Eleanor chooses to donate Maya's organs. Years later, she is able to hear Maya's heart beat in the chest of the heart recipient. Along the way, Eleanor re-examines her relationship with her daughter, as well as her own traumatic past. In a story that has been called "heartbreaking and heart-healing," Eleanor Vincent illuminates the kind of courage, creativity, faith, and sheer tenacity it takes to find one's balance after unthinkable tragedy.
