520    zRachel beautifully illustrates that loving fiercely and 
       grieving deeply are often two halves of the same whole. 
       Her story will break you down and lift you up.y Glennon 
       Doyle, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Love 
       Warrior and founder of Together Rising  While on her way 
       to teach a yoga retreat in March 2014, Rachel Brathen 
       collapses at an airport, brought to her knees by 
       excruciating stomach pains. She is rushed to the hospital 
       on the tiny island of Bonaire, and hours later forced to 
       undergo surgery. When she wakes up from anesthesia, her 
       boyfriend is weeping at her bedside. While Rachel was 
       struck down with seemingly mysterious pain, her best 
       friend, Andrea, sustained fatal injuries as a result of a 
       car accident. Rachel and Andrea had a magical friendship. 
       Though they looked nothing alikeone girl tall, blond, and 
       Swedish, the other short, brunette, and Colombianeveryone 
       called them gemelas: twins.  Over the three years 
       following Andreas death, at what might appear from the 
       outside to be the happiest timewith her engagement to the 
       man she loves and a blossoming career that takes her all 
       over the worldRachel faces a series of trials that have 
       the potential to define her life. Unresolved grief and 
       trauma from her childhood make the weight of her sadness 
       unbearable. At each turn, she is confronted again and 
       again with a choice: Will she lose it all, succumb to 
       grief, and grasp for control thats beyond her reach? Or 
       can she move through the loss and let go?  When Rachel and
       her husband conceive a child, pregnancy becomes a time to 
       heal and an opportunity to be reborn herself. As she 
       recounts this transformative period, Rachel shares her 
       hard-won wisdom about life and death, love and fear, what 
       it means to be a mother and a daughter, and how to become 
       someone who walks through the fire of adversity with the 
       never-ending practice of loving hard and letting go.
