MY REVIEW OF “BEAUTY IN THE BROKEN PLACES: A MEMOIR OF LOVE, FAITH AND RESILIENCE”
Allison Pataki, Author of “Beauty in the Broken Places : A Memoir of Love, Faith and Resilience” has written an amazing, emotional, heart-wrenching ,captivating and thoughtful memoir. Can you imagine a thiry year old pregnant woman, and her thirty year old husband, (who is a third year medical resident), facing an unknow tragedy?
The author and her husband were off on a “baby-moon” to enjoy a much-needed vacation, when her young husband has a life threatening stroke on the airplane. The Airplane is forced to make an emergency landing, and Allison Pataki is faced life threatening challenges.
The Author starts to write everything down, to keep it as something to show her husband if he survives. I admire the author’s honesty, courage, dignity, resourcefulness, compassion, and loyalty. When the author was struggling to cope she turned to loved ones for help, and she kept praying. Allison Pataki had hope and faith. I would recommend this beautiful written memoir to other readers. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest review.
