Overview

Big Shoes: A Young Widowed Mother’s Memoir is the compelling story of Lisa Bradshaw and her husband Wesley, who met as children and were married more than ten years. Big Shoes is a raw and candid look at the breaking hearts of two people in love, fighting for the life they had built with their young son. Bradshaw and her husband struggle as they courageously navigate his mysterious illness and attempt to prepare her and their son for a life without him. Bradshaw shares the extreme lows and eventual triumphs that follow his death, including her new life as a widowed single mother, dating for the first time since college, crossing the abyss of grief, and forming a non profit organization to help bring others to their own purpose. Big Shoes is not just a story of death and loss, it is about prevailing and finding true happiness, not in spite of what happens to us but because of what happens to us.

Editorial Reviews

Heather Menzies-Urich
Big Shoes a brilliant, soul-wrenching book written with electric honesty and passion. It is a universal experience: a portrait of a marriage during good times and bad. Bradshaw's story is delivered with raw truth in remarkable, beautiful language and speaks to anyone who has loved and lost.
Jeffrey Zaslow
Lisa Bradshaw thinks and talks and writes with her heart. She tells her story with a brave and inspired narrative that is thoroughly engaging and powerful.

—Jeffrey Zaslow, co-author The Last Lecture
John St. Augustine
Lisa Bradshaw's walk through darkness has actually created more light in the world and, if you allow the messages of this book to permeate your soul, that light will guide you when you need it most.

—John St.Augustine, author Every Moment Matters
Lisa Oz
While Lisa Bradshaw writes of her husband's death in Big Shoes, what we really experience in these pages is the journey of her own rebirth.

—Lisa Oz, author US: Transforming Ourselves and the Relationships that Matter Most
