Publisher Description

The New York Times–bestselling author shares “moving and passionate” true stories of people who found their purpose through perseverance and service (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Taya Kyle entered a period of deep grief when she lost her husband, “American Sniper” Chris Kyle. Yet the experience served as a catalyst for profound growth. Taya found her own reserve of strength with the help of family and friends—and also many strangers across America, who shared their own stories of suffering and survival. Inspired by their courage, Taya discovered her calling: spreading a message of how we can triumph over personal pain and heal our communities.

Working with trusted collaborator Jim DeFelice (coauthor of American Sniper and American Wife), Taya tells her own story, as well as those of other Americans who have built extraordinary lives after grappling with loss, illness, all manner of setback: a 9/11 survivor, badly burned over 60% of his body, who asked himself What debt to do I owe to God?; a man with the hole in his heart who runs ultramarathons; a young cancer victim whose lemonade stand inspired a revolutionary new model for fighting cancer; a pastor who became an undercover investigator, and more.

The more than thirty individual profiled here embody the “American spirit” of resilience, faith, and togetherness that has built the nation. In the end, their stories teach us that “every action, big or small, has the potential to spark someone else’s movement.”
