    "An intelligent, moving must-read!" Anyone who has faced a family tragedy--or who knows a family that has--will gain from reading Kate Willette's extraordinary account of the first year after her husband Bruce broke his neck. Willette's writing is flawless, her account gripping, and her portraits of all involved--her family of four, extended family members who lent physical and emotional support, church and other community members who rallied selflessly around this beloved family--are fair, insightful, and unflinching. Keep your Kleenex handy, read this book, and know that healing can happen not only for the seriously injured but for those of us who are fortunate enough to be included in their sphere. Deborah Davis

    This is a courageous, compelling, and heartening book, sure to give hope to anyone or any family facing a spinal cord injury. Willette writes with emotional honesty, humor, and a sure sense of how to tell a story. She shows, through her family's experience, how to pull together, support each other, accept help--all the cliched actions that are so hard to really pull off. If you've ever made lasagne for a friend in need, or not, read this book.

    "A journey you will not forget! " Through Kate's perspective, we travel through the fears, joys, worries and successes of a family's tragedy. It is a daily journey where the expected and unexpected meld; community, faith and family are integral parts of the story. I bought three copies and am buying two more. I gave one to a doctor, one to a friend dealing with MS, and one to a depressed teen.

    "Some Things are Unbreakable" This was a moving and believable account. As one who has both been a caretaker and one cared for, at different times in my life, I could relate to this story, which is told honestly and realistically, and with humor. I have passed the book on to a hospital chaplain who runs a CPE program, thinking that the way in which the book presents the feelings and reactions of patient and family would be of great use to someone who sees people and families dealing with trauma.
