Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kellyand#8217;s story is a reminder andlt;/Iandgt;of the power of true grit, the patience needed to navigate unimaginable obstacles, and the transcendence of love. 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 and#8220;miraculous.and#8221; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;As the nation grieved and sought to understand the attack, Gabby remained in private, focused on her againstall- odds recovery. Intimate, inspiring, and unforgettably moving, andlt;Iandgt;Gabby andlt;/Iandgt;provides an unflinching look at the overwhelming challenges of brain injury, the painstaking process of learning to communicate again, and the responsibilities that fall to a loving spouse who wants the best possible treatment for his wife. Told in Markand#8217;s voice and from Gabbyand#8217;s heart, the book also chronicles the lives that brought these two extraordinary people togetherand#8212;their humor, their ambitions, their sense of duty, their longdistance marriage, and their desire for family. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;A new, moving final chapter brings Gabbyand#8217;s story up to date, including the state of her health and her announcement that she would leave the House of Representatives.
