In the introduction to TRUE GRIT AND GRACE, Amberly Lago ends with a line that sums up not only her book, but her outlook on life.
“You’ve got a shovel in your hand. You can either lean on it and pray for a hole, or you can start digging.”
True Grit And Grace is the true story of Amberly Lago and embodies the subtitle, Turning Tragedy Into Triumph, perfectly. She begins by setting the stage and showing how ordinary and every day routines can change ones life in the blink of an eye. The first event occurs where many accidents happen, in her own neighborhood. This relatively minor incident sets off a string of events that culminate in a horrible motorcycle crash that altered her life forever.
She nearly loses her leg in an accident and it is only her own Texas grit and in the support of her husband that she finds the resolve and courage to fight through and keep her damaged limb. She pulls no punches as she describes the horrendous pain and the relentless determination of herself , her family and her medical team to save her and keep her leg.
Throughout her story, Amberly reflects on her life growing up and reveals not only the upbringing that gave her the no surrender attitude that carried through the pain of over 30 surgeries, but she reveals a background that has broken more than one person on its own.
True Grit And Grace: Turning Tragedy To Triumph is a raw, brutal tale of courage and personal strength that will alternately tug at your heartstrings and make you cheer out loud as she fights her way back to normal life. The book itself is well written and paced, leading to a story you will not be able to put down.
