This is a story about how post-traumatic stress disorder affected one woman’s life. Through it All resonates with anyone who has found love and lost it.

 

A healing memoir of love and loss. HEDDY finds true love as a young girl, but suddenly and unexpectedly loses it. Thirty-seven years later, inspired by her daughter’s questioning, her heart attack, and heart bypass surgery, the divorced school teacher sets out to find out what happened to her lost love. Driven by her undying love for LEON SMITH, she searches for answers to longstanding questions. She yearns to be in his arms again.
