Description

Como individuos, la congresista Gabrielle Giffords y su esposo, el astronauta Mark Kelly, demostraron a los estadounidenses cómo el optimismo, el espíritu aventurero y el llamado al servicio pueden ayudar a cambiar el mundo. Como pareja, se convirtieron en un ejemplo nacional del poder sanador que puede encontrarse en la valentía y el amor profundamente compartidos.

Su llegada al centro de atención mundial se dio en la peor de las situaciones. El 8 de enero de 2011, al reunirse con sus electores en Tucson, Arizona, Gabby fue víctima de un atentado que dejó seis muertos y trece heridos. Los médicos dijeron que era un “milagro” que hubiera sobrevivido.

Íntima, inspiradora, conmovedora e inolvidable, Gabby: Una historia de valor y esperanza cuenta la vida de estas dos personas extraordinarias. Lleva a los lectores detrás de muchas puertas cerradas: a la plataforma de lanzamiento del transbordador espacial, a los vestuarios del Congreso, y a las salas de hospital donde Gabby luchó para recuperarse con la ayuda de formidables equipos médicos y de familiares y amigos dedicados.

Gabby: Una historia de valor y esperanza es un recordatorio del poder que tienen la valentía y la paciencia en la superación de obstáculos inimaginables, y de la trascendencia del amor.

Publishers Weekly Review

Dec 19, 2011 – Astronaut Kelly's 2007 marriage to Arizona Congresswoman Giffords marked another milestone in lives dedicated to the betterment of the state of Arizona, the nation, and the space program. But when Giffords was shot in the head in early 2011, the couple's lives took a direction neither could've anticipated. Told by Kelly, this stirring account traces family stories, the logistics of living through a medical nightmare, and his simultaneous struggle to command his final space mission. Determined to focus on that command, yet driven by his desire to meet Giffords's needs, Kelly split care-giving duties with her mother, recalling that throughout the ordeal "my wife was relentless." Later, the painstaking procedures of cranial surgery are detailed, along with the slow, miraculous recovery that culminated in Giffords's trip to Washington, D.C. to vote on the debt ceiling bill. Other achievements and challenges during the year—particularly for Giffords's loyal staffers—are also duly noted. Giffords herself, in simple, coherent language, provides a final page about her ongoing recovery to conclude this picture of a victorious human spirit.
