Nearly twenty-six years after receiving her first heart transplant, Silverstein's donor heart began to fail. During her grueling quest for a new heart, nine women-- Joy, Jill, Leja, Jody, Lauren, Robin, Valerie, Ann, and Jane-- put demanding jobs and pressing family obligations on hold to fly across the country and be by her side. This is the story of that connection and empathy, a powerful reminder of the ultimate importance of 'showing up' for those we love.
Memoirist Amy Silverstein tells the story of an extraordinary group of women who surrounded and supported her through the long, emotional fight to stay alive as she waited for her second heart transplant in twenty-five years.
