A mother shares her son's life-changing accident. At twenty-two not only was he reincarnated to a new way of existence, so too his family.Experience his early years, a foundation of intertwining between mother and son - then dealing with the unexpected in life. She came to admire Brian's humor and creativity in dealing with hardships, plus his determination in trials to fight for himself and his beliefs. Her goal is to incorporate into herself what his experiences taught her: "Above all, no matter the circumstances, believe in self."Eleanor's story is not just a message of hope for those suffering from the unbelievable, but it honors and relates to the Silent Warriors who bite the lip, and hide the heartache of caring for their loved one. Indeed the story has its pathways of sorrow, but also great joys.I enjoyed a 'mother's perspective of a son's journey. I was enlightened to the overwhelming trials a paralyzed human being encounters daily.  Laurie McAlpineIndeed a philosopher and sage drawing meaning from the glorious and the agonizing; wisdom acquired along the way. There is pleasure in the unassuming manner in which it is dispensed.I marveled at the depth, sometimes a pearl I almost missed. I could string a necklace from those pearls. A mother and son lived tragedy and in it found meaning. I enjoyed the passion, humor, and fun in some of the most unlikely situations; what an example. Kimberley McKaigI was there on that day of the 'Fateful Call'; it was a nightmare. Until I read this book I had no idea how much of a nightmare it continued to be. The honesty of her message will be supportive for families in similar situations - a story each reader will enjoy and learn from. Margaret Hildahl
