Persistent vegetative state—that was the term doctors used to describe the condition of Leone Nunley’s handsome young son David following a horrific motorcycle crash. When doctors were prepared to give up hope for his recovery, Leone determined to fight for David’s future.

In this powerfully inspiring story, Leone shares her many trials—legal, financial, emotional, and spiritual—and amazing ways that faith helped her, and David, overcome. She also offers a unique and personal perspective on many of the questions raised by highly publicized cases such as that of Terri Schiavo: How much potential has God given the human brain to adapt in the wake of trauma? What is the dividing line between hope and hopelessness? When is life worth fighting for? How much time, effort, and money is enough to invest in attempts at rehabilitation—and how much is too much?

If you’ve ever wondered whether faith and persistence can be more powerful than a doctor’s diagnosis, look inside. You’ll find remarkable lessons on choosing hope over despair, opting for hard work over giving up, and erring on the side of love.
