9781500554538: Walk on Water

After world-renowned surgeon Thomas Starzl gave Robyn her father's kidney in 1973, she became both a miracle of modern medicine and a dissident, now in kidney failure for the third time, she seeks to reconcile her fight for survival with the grace of letting go. Walk on Water is a memoir about one woman's need to fit death and life into the same prayer. The gift that spared her when she was a child allowed Robyn two decades of running wild and finding sanctuary in nature. But her will outdistanced her father's kidney, and no human could convince her to ask for help. Her beloved horse kicked her, just missing her heart. Her denial and spiral toward death came to a halt in the hands of a doctor—the one doctor among a slew who didn't bother to listen, who heard every word she couldn't say. He was the bridge between the freedom her soul sought and her fallible body. As it interweaves narratives of loss and reinvention, Walk on Water transforms desolation into restoration. It reaches into the heart of the dying for the hope and love and light we might leave behind.
