Publisher's Summary

On April 15, 2013, Rebekah Gregory and her five-year-old son waited at the finish line of the Boston Marathon to support a friend who was running. When the blasts of terrorists' homemade bombs packed with nails and screws went off three feet away, Rebekah's legs took the brunt of the blast, protecting her son from certain death. Eighteen surgeries and 65 procedures later, her left leg was amputated.

Despite the extraordinary trauma she underwent and the nightmares she continues to have, Rebekah sees it as just another part of her personal journey, a journey that has led her through abuse, mistakes, and pain and into the arms of Jesus. This stirring memoir tells the story of her recovery, including her triumphant return to Boston two years later to run part of the race, and explores the peace we experience when we learn to trust God with every part of our lives - the good, the bad, and even the terrifying.

Listeners will be moved by the joyous way Rebekah is determined to live her life, seeing every obstacle as part of how God forms us into the people we are meant to be. Listeners will also find comfort in the message that it's not what they can or can't do that makes the difference, but rather what God, in his mercy, does through them despite it all. Life is hard, but with God all things are possible.

Honesty is the best policy

This book was one of the best Christian books I have read in a while. Rebekah does not paint the Christian life as sun shine and rose and white picket fences. She is honest and listing to her story encourages you saying your not alone with some of the thoughts and feelings you face daily, like doubt and fear and trust and so much more. Also her victim statement during the trial was powerful! Most do not understand that yes God is a God of forgiveness, which she states, but if there is no remorse for ones actions or no repentance God is also a God of judgment. She so perfectly and clearly conveyed that in her victim statement before the court in the Boston bombing trial.

The only negative thing I would say is that the book is read extremely slow, so I listened to the book at X1.5 the speed.

This book kept my interest. I found her story fascinating and how she faces her struggles truly inspiring. Her strength is something I feel I can draw on when facing my own struggles.
