From the Back Cover:

June Scobee Rodgers, wife of Challenger Commander Dick Scobee, tells of her inspirational journey from victim of the Challenger tragedy to survivor committed to continuing the mission.

"The Challenger Seven lived in vibrant pursuit of a dream; and as long as we continue to pursue that dream, as long as we help it to touch the lives of our young people, then it can be said that we never truly lost those seven brave souls. In her book, Silver Linings, and by her everyday example, June Scobee Rodgers proves that this dream does indeed endure: The adventure of exploration and discovery embodied in the Challenger crew awaits those who have the will to make it happen."-Former President George Bush

"June Scobee Rodgers is a remarkable woman, and her book tells an inspiring tale of triumph arising from tragedy. America's space program has always been about discovery-discovery of our universe, our world, and most importantly, ourselves. Although the flight of the Challenger ended tragically, June Scobee Rodgers never gave up. June has continued the Challenger's mission of discovery and education with courage, faith, and a tireless energy. Her moving story will touch all readers."-Senator John Glenn

"Silver Linings is the true and inspiring story of the triumph of faith in the face of overwhelming defeat...from lowly beginnings and through wrenching struggle, June Scobee Rodgers has proven herself to be one of God's great winners. Her story has touched my heart and renewed my conviction that God can turn all scars into stars. May her story here in picture and word lead you beyond all your tribulations into triumph."-Dr. Robert Schuller

From the Inside Flap:

We watched in silence as our loved ones climbed the sky sunward. Their craft from the distance seemed to sit atop a great flume of smoke. The floor shook with the sheer raw power of the millions of pounds of thrust. ...My son lovingly and protectively put his arms around me and his sister. As I reached to help my daughter Kathie with the baby...it happened! The unspeakable happened. Standing there together, watching with all the world, we saw the shuttle rip apart. The SRBs went screaming off on their own separate paths and the orbiter with our loved ones exploded in the cold blue sky, and like our hearts it shattered into a million pieces.
