9781608081349: A Mother's Dance: One Step Back, Two Steps Forward, Full Circle

How does one measure the depth of a mother's love? Pattie never thought it possible until she experienced every mother's worst nightmare--twice.

With all three kids in college and thriving, Pattie is excited about embarking on her new career as community relations manager at Barnes & Noble. That is, until she receives word that her nineteen-year-old son has been admitted to the Medical University of South Carolina and tagged 'John Doe' after he suffered a traumatic brain injury. Now her sole concern is to get to Charleston, 250 miles away, before he takes his final breath.

Although Casey is given only twenty-four hours to live, Pattie clings to her faith and refuses to accept his death sentence. During Casey's long and arduous healing, Pattie takes a hard look at the past--the kids' tender childhood memories, their challenging teenage years, the skeletons in the closet, and the circumstances that have formed her into who she has become. When tragedy strikes again, Pattie must make a choice--to remain stuck in her grief or to step into the life she's meant to create.

Moving and heart-wrenching, A Mother's Dance is an inspirational story about family relationships, hope, perseverance, self-discovery, hard choices, and most importantly about love...the sad and the wondrous.

I wrote this book in hopes it would bring healing to others, Hall says. Instead, I discovered that I was the one who healed.

"2016 Best Book Award" finalist.

From the Inside Flap:

Mainly the book is a story about hope, resilience, fortitude, faith, and about the value of family and friends--the most important elements in the recovery of any patient. It reminds practicing physicians and nurses that "the little things" matter the most to patients and families, that we often overlook them, that patients and families may have creative ways to improve therapy and should be encouraged to do so, and that the fortitude of our patients can be limitless. Our encounters with patients are brief but Pattie takes us beyond that brief period to see the past and the aftermath of the ICU stay, full of obstacles but also graced with wonderful accomplishments and joys. . . A must read for those involved in the care of patients with acute brain injuries. ~Julio A. Chalela MD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery,  Medical University of South Carolina, Medical Director NSICU

From the Back Cover:

Pattie Welek Hall shares her heartbreaking story with grace and eloquence. Never do the tears feel forced, or the cheers undeserved. Every scene brings new challenges and hope...always hope. A true testimony to a mother's love. ~Lori Nelson Spielman, #1 international bestselling author of THE LIFE LIST and her latest novel SWEET FORGIVENESS.
