The Marathon

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


As Tom Sheeran prepares to run the Boston Marathon, he comes across an envelope, stuffed into his bag the morning of the race.  Written by his wife, the letter inside matches the course’s 26.2 miles with the struggles he and his family have endured during the previous, sometimes heart-breaking, fifteen months.  Joining Tom as he tackles the course from Hopkinton to Copley Square, the reader follows the gripping ride of a family’s response to life’s incredible twists in the road.  Uniquely told from both parents’ points of view, THE MARATHON follows a couple's attempt to save both their child’s life and their dwindling faith.

In THE MARATHON, Sheeran courageously reveals the innermost thoughts and fears of parents struggling with experiences far beyond their control.  Her true story uncovers the heart and soul behind one of the world's most historic races while beautifully demonstrating the power of inner strength, endurance, and human connection. Honest, humorous and raw, the emotions ring true from the start all the way through to an ending no one will predict.  Of broad appeal to parents, athletes, medical professionals, and families in search of healing.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Boston Children's Hospital in direct support of prenatal and neonatal care.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful read...

To give birth to a child with so many challenges to face on a minute/hourly basis in her first 3 months of life has got to be gut-wrenching, waiting so see what the next day will bring.
This book took me into the depths of this family and every painful step they took along the way for "mighty Emma" on her road to recovery.
I highly recommend this book because of the way the author made you feel as though you were right there in the room with them. I cried, I laughed and I felt connected and committed to the story because it makes you "need" to know that even with the biggest struggles God gives you, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
Well done. It's a tough one to put down!
