In an inspiring true story of courage, creativity, faith, and sheer tenacity, Eleanor Vincent seeks to find balance after unthinkable tragedy. Eleanor raised her two daughters, Maya and Meghan, virtually as a single-parent. Maya, the eldest, was a high-spirited and gifted young woman. Then at age 19, Maya mounts a horse bareback as a dare, falls and is left in a coma from which she will never recover. Ultimately Eleanor chooses to donate Maya's organs. Years later, Eleanor meets the recipient of Maya's heart and hears her daughter's heart beat again. Along the way, Eleanor re-examines her relationship with Maya, as well as the experiences that shaped Eleanor as a woman and mother.
