Summary
Five months pregnant, on a flight to their 'babymoon,' Allison Pataki turned to her husband when he asked if his eye looked strange and watched him lose consciousness. After an emergency landing, she discovered that Dave -- a healthy thirty-year-old athlete and surgical resident -- had suffered a rare, life-threatening stroke. Allison was unsure if her husband would survive the night. When Dave finally woke up, he could not carry memories from hour to hour, and Allison realized she had lost the man she knew and loved. Soon she was caring for both a newborn and a husband, struggling with the fear of what was to come. Trying to make sense of the unfathomable experiences unfolding around her, Allison started to write daily letters to Dave, to provide him with the memories that would preserve their past, protect their present, and fight for their future. Those letters became the foundation of this beautiful, intimate memoir -- a manifesto for living and an uplifting story about the transformative power of finding joy in the broken places
