In 2006, Abby Rike lost the life she knew and loved when her husband and two young children were killed in a car accident. Devastated and numb, she shut down. For nearly three years she walked through life like a spectre, present in body only. As she descended, so did her health.
Fortunately, Abby was not alone. She had loving parents, supportive friends, and a faith that continued to sustain her. Little by little she found the courage to return to life. Joining The Biggest Loser proved a catalyst for the physical and emotional changes she needed to make. In fact, against all odds Abby gained strength, courage, wisdom, and continued her steadfast relationship with God. Instead of anger, she found herself slowly but steadily healing. She lost a hundred pounds but gained hope.
In this riveting book, Abby tells her story - from her joyous life before the accident to the unbearable pain that followed it and her eventual emergence as a woman reinvigorated by her faith in God. Today Abby's resilience and positivity are a testament to the power and importance of faith in the darkest hours.

This was such an excellent book, because Abby is such a good writer, communicator and is so easy to listen to. Her story was so very interesting, but because she was the narrator, it was far more interesting. It felt like she was just sitting down and telling me her experience. It was so easy to tell how real this story was, when I could hear voice quake as she told some of the most heart-wrenching moments. Abby is so well spoken which made the book a five star! I am so sorry that she had to experience many of her heartaches, but so glad that she was able to use it for nothing but, His glory!
I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone, no matter what is going on in their lives. Everyone can learn from Abby's triumphant story of love, loss, and hope.
