Synopsis: When a thick vine of vessels in his brain burst one ordinary evening, Kevin Wells' life took an abrupt, unanticipated turn. After having already navigated past a series of devastating events, the former sportswriter was now forced to push back death. And, miraculously, it was his beloved deceased uncle, Msgr. Tom Wells, who helped spearhead the comeback. In this riveting story, Wells details his reliance on steady humor, persistent faith and the prayers of thousands to win back life. The result is this spiritually-rich memoir, which offers hard-earned encouragement for those struggling through perilous times and looking for a reason to hang on. Readers will come to see what Wells eventually did: that Christ's graces are always hidden in the pain.

From the Back Cover: "Burst is a profound meditation of reality. From the hands of a talented writer and the heart of a faithful believer comes this riveting tale of courage, resilience and faith. I cannot imagine anyone who will not be moved by this stunning story of surrender to God's grace. Highly recommended." - Fr. James Martin, SJ., best-selling author of My Life with the Saints

"Every reader will find a compelling testimony to God's faithfulness and a source of encouragement as they seek to connect their daily lives to God and to trust in the power of prayer." - Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington D.C.

"I knew Kevin Wells when he was a sports writer, and even then I knew his words and his life would carry him far beyond playing fields and box scores. Burst is a story of near-death and all that life can be, of tragedy and triumph, of God's love and the splendor of faith, of a shining light named Tommy, a savior named Krista and three gifts from heaven above named Gabrielle, Sean and Shannon. Someone once said, "Faith isn't faith until it's all you're holding onto." Kevin's words and story take you in like that, in a warm spiritual embrace that never lets go." - Martin Fennelly, nationally-acclaimed sports columnist for the Tampa Tribune.
