Japlo's loving family life is suddenly torn apart by a band of violent rebels in Liberia. Blinded, and homeless, she depends on her small daughter, as they both courageously run for their lives. Across the globe, in the city of Chicago, a completely different world of struggles face a small and equally brave group of women: Eva must try to save her family from the damage caused by long held secrets. Anna is destroying herself with anger and bitterness toward a mother who has betrayed and abandoned her. Having lost her chance at love, Kristina tries to win back her high school sweetheart, but is overwhelmed by just how much she will need to change to make that happen.
It is the strength of one woman, Gracie Carlson, that ties these stories of self-realization and survival together as she leads them to transformations beyond anything they had dreamed possible.
An inspiring and heartwarming story of motherhood, friendship, and personal achievement, With Grace Under Pressure will bring you into the pulse of Chicago, the intimate lives of women, and the bond of runners everywhere.
