520    "A deeply moving memoir about two lives that were changed 
       in the blink of an eye, and the love that helped them 
       rewrite their future. 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 
       suddenly lose consciousness. After an emergency landing, 
       she discovered that Dave--a healthy thirty-year-old 
       athlete and surgical resident--had suffered a rare and 
       life-threatening stroke. Next thing Allison knew, she was 
       sitting alone in the ER in Fargo, North Dakota, waiting to
       hear if her husband would survive the night.  When Dave 
       woke up, he could not carry memories from hour to hour, 
       much less from one day to the next. Allison lost the Dave 
       she knew and loved when he lost consciousness on the 
       plane. Within a few months, she found herself caring for 
       both a newborn and a sick husband, struggling with the 
       fear of what was to come.  As a way to make sense of the 
       pain and chaos of their new reality, Allison started to 
       write daily letters to Dave. Not only would she work to 
       make sense of the unfathomable experiences unfolding 
       around her, but her letters would provide Dave with the 
       memories he could not make on his own. She was writing to 
       preserve their past, protect their present, and fight for 
       their future. Those letters became the foundation for this
       beautiful, intimate memoir. And in the process, she fell 
       in love with her husband all over again.  This is a 
       manifesto for living, an ultimately uplifting story about 
       the transformative power of faith and resilience. It's a 
       tale of a husband's turbulent road to recovery, the 
       shifting nature of marriage, and the struggle of loving 
       through pain and finding joy in the broken places"--
