In 2006, Abby Rike lost the life she knew and loved when her husband and two young children were killed in a car accident. Devastated and numb, she shut down. For nearly three years she walked through life like a specter, present in body only. As she descended, so did her health.
Fortunately, Abby was not alone. She had loving parents, supportive friends, and a faith that, though shaken, continued to sustain her. Little by little she found the courage to return to life. Joining The Biggest Loser proved a catalyst for the physical and emotional changes she needed to make. In fact, against all odds Abby gained strength, courage, wisdom, and continued her steadfast relationship with God. Instead of anger, she found herself slowly but steadily healing. She lost a hundred pounds but gained hope.
In this riveting book, Abby tells her story-from her joyous life before the accident, to the unbearable pain that followed it, and her eventual emergence as a woman reinvigorated by her faith in God. Today Abby's resilience and positivity are a testament to the power and importance of faith in the darkest hours.

I just recently got this book. It looked pretty interesting so I thought I would give it a try. I had no idea that it would be such a great book. The things that she talks about are really inspirational and I really hope she keeps writing like this.

How could someone not gain something from reading a book like this. When someone has been through so much, it really puts things in your own life in perspective. Very inspirational, and a great motivational book to boot.

Abby's story is not only inspiring and motivational but truly makes you want to be the best you can be. I'm sure this book will be very moving, not only to those who may be familiar with Abby, but anyone who has suffered loss or has struggles in their lives (which is pretty much all of us). I pray that God would continue to be glorified through Abby's life.
