Saving Graces: Finding Solace and Strength from Friends and Strangers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Edwards writes about growing up in a military family, where she learned how to make friends easily in dozens of new schools and neighborhoods around the world and came to appreciate the unstinting help and comfort naval families shared. Edwards reminiscences of her years as a mother focus on the support she and other parents offered one another, from everyday favors to the ultimate test of her own communitys strength—their compassionate response to the death of the Edwards teenage son, Wade, in 1996. Her descriptions of her husbands campaigns for Senate, president, and vice president offer a fascinating perspective on the groups, great and small, that sustain our democracy. Her fight with breast cancer, which stirred an outpouring of support from women across the country, has once again affirmed Edwards belief in the power of community to make our lives better and richer.

Synopsis:

Elizabeth Edwards incandescent memoir--a bestseller in hardcover-- is now available in paperback.
