“A reminder of human resilience and the power of story”
When in 2003 an elderly driver plowed into a busy Santa Monica farmers’ market, 36-year-old Melissa Cronin’s life was shattered in an instant. In her riveting memoir, Cronin takes us through her journey of recovery as she slowly rebuilds her life anew. Writing with the expert eye of a medical professional, Cronin’s prose is at times tender, funny, lyrical, and always painstakingly honest. [Her Memoir] will astonish readers with a reminder of our human resilience and the power of story in our precarious lives.“
