Author D. J. O’Bree and her husband, David—called Doc—have always had a similar passion for fast cars and motorbikes; it was one of the things that drew them together from the start. On June 1, 1996, Doc left their home early in the morning to look at a larger car, as they were expecting their first baby. That was a day that would change their lives forever.
Doc was in a serious accident, one that D. J. found out only by chance. He had been in the hospital without her for most of the day, a fact that propelled her strength and commitment to him in the coming days. Doc experienced memory loss and multiple injuries, but throughout it all, the couple stuck together. These challenges took them to a world they never knew existed, opening their eyes to the heartbreak around them and bringing them to the realization that they were not alone in the recovery process. Through this story, D. J. hopes to inspire others in similar situations to discover the fund of inner strength that can guide them through the recovery process.
This memoir tells the story of a couple who experienced a devastating accident and their inspirational journey of strength, connection, and endurance through recovery.
