Overview

David and Deborah Tainsh were living the happiest years of their lives until the dark morning of February 12, 2004, when a six a.m. knock at the door brought the news that their son, Sergeant Patrick Tainsh, had been killed in Iraq. Patrick, David's only child, was the pride of his life. He was the son who overcame a rebellious, drug-addicted youth to become an outstanding U.S. Army Cavalry Scout, posthumously awarded the Bronze and Silver Stars for saving the lives of his commanding officer and other soldiers before succumbing to his own wounds. In the wake of their loss, David and Deborah battle horrific grief and anger while trying to hold their marriage—and one another—together in an unforgettable journey toward healing.

Meet the Author

DEBORAH TAINSH's stepson, Patrick, was killed in Iraq. Writing initially to sort out her own grief, Deborah captured the raw and tender moments of her family's sorrow and remembrance in Heart of a Hawk: One family's sacrifice and journey toward healing. Her volunteer work with grieving families inspired her to compile stories from other Gold Star parents in Surviving the Folded Flag: Parents of war share stories of coping, courage, and faith.
