Overview

(This is a fifty page piece.)

On January 29, 2006, Denise Grover Swank’s life changed forever.

On that afternoon, her husband of ten years crash-landed his malfunctioning single-engine plane in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Dr. Darrell Swank suffered multiple fractures, and third degree burns over sixty percent of his body when the gas tank exploded as he crawled away from the wreckage.

Over the next five weeks, she struggled to be a mother to their children while she kept a near round-the-clock vigil at the hospital. Darrell’s survival was questionable from one day to the next, and even if he survived, would he be the same man he was before the crash? Did his fate depend on this test of her faith?

The Death of Me is the true story of a wife and mother living day to day through a fog of shock and unimaginable agony. And, alone in the aftermath, fumbling for some way to not only survive, but to thrive.

It is a story of pain, of release, of forgiveness. And of healing, resilience, and rebirth.

It is a story of a writer finding her voice.

    Oh, god... Oh my dear god... Where do I start? I am sitting at m

    Oh, god... Oh my dear god...
    Where do I start? I am sitting at my computer, crying. I'm halfway through this book and I had to stop to breathe. I've been reading but I found I was holding my breath, tears falling from my eyes. I was sobbing. This story of Denise's is so raw. So honest. I feel as though I am her. I am right there every minute of her agony. Oh Darrell!!!!
    20 pages in I stood up and rushed to where my own husband sat and hugged him so hard. I made him promise that nothing would ever happen to him, he would always be alright, and that he would live forever. He laughed, saying he couldn't promise that. I hugged him harder.
    Denise has laid herself open with this story. It is all there, open and raw. You are her. You feel her agony at Darrell's side. You feel her worry, her pain, her raw emotion. You feel her feel.
    Oh, god...
    Denise, this story you've told is a triumph, an incredibly painful, raw, personal triumph. I can only say to you: oh my god...
    Thank you for sharing your heart, your pain, your feeling, your incredible story.
    My god...
