Gabby - A Story of Courage and Hope

Gabrielle Giffords

From one of the most admired and beloved couples in recent American history, an extraordinarily moving story of public service, risk-taking, romance-and the journey toward recovery. This book delivers hope and redemption in the face of the tragic shooting, and introduces two unforgettable heroes. As individuals, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, showed Americans how optimism, an adventurous spirit, and a call to service can help change the world. As a couple, they became a national example of the healing power to be found in deeply shared love and courage. 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 "miraculous." As the nation grieved, Gabby remained in private, focused on her against-all-odds recovery. Mark spent every possible moment by her side, as he also prepared for his final mission as commander of the space shuttle Endeavour. Now, as Gabby's health continues to improve, the couple shares their remarkable untold story. Told in Mark's voice and from Gabby's heart, Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope chronicles the lives that brought these two extraordinary people together and 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. Gabby and Mark made a pledge to tell their account as honestly as possible, and they have done so in riveting detail, taking listeners behind many closed doors-from the flight deck of the space shuttle to the cloakrooms of Congress to the hospital wards where Gabby struggled to reclaim herself. Questions are answered with unvarnished candor. How do Gabby and Mark feel about the angry political discourse
