Found Art is a memoir of the year author Leeana Tankersley lived in the Middle East with her Navy SEAL husband during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. After a whirlwind courtship, a move across the world, and the unexpectedly difficult re-entry from a year overseas, Leeana finds her life (and her soul) has been changed forever.With an artist’s eye, Tankersley uses each chapter to piece together moments and memories from her journey—a handwritten note from Kuwait, a braid of fringe from a Persian rug, an original poem, a bit of basting thread, a swatch of black silk from a borrowed abaya, a mesquite leaf, a Navy SEAL trident, a receipt from the Russian-Georgian restaurant on Louisiana Street—to create a work of unexpected beauty.Found art emerges … a literary collage created from salvaged stories of loss, hope, and belief that just might change your soul, too.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Leeana’s story is extraordinary, and so is her storytelling ability. As I finished Found Art, I felt like I had made a friend and that together we had traveled long distances, both around the world and into a deeper understanding of what it means to be a woman of faith---many different kinds of faith. Her story is at once so foreign and so familiar, because the power of her writing is so compelling.” -- Shauna Niequist
