Book Review - Back to the Summit
Senator Rains has been a politician on the global stage, a power-broking lawyer of A-list celebrities, and a conqueror of some of the highest mountains in the world. When a paralyzing brain aneurysm and stroke hit him at age 61, he became more helpless than a small child.
In Back to the Summit, Rains takes readers on a courageous journey toward recovery, both physical and spiritual, as he reflects on the people, events, and American history that shaped his life and gave him the strength to dare to walk again. Every flashback to the past offers insight into the philosophy that once saved his life and now defines his every action.
Those who have suffered physical trauma may find hope in his story; their loved ones may gain insight and understanding. And any reader who has ever faced a mountain of a setback will be inspired to keep on fighting to live again.
Back to the Summit takes us on a journey toward physical and spiritual recovery that reminds us that anything is possible.
My Take on the Book
This was an inspirational story that brought to life the journey of one man back from the brink of disability. I had never heard of this person before, but the story was definitely one that was so open. The author shared so much about his life and if you are like me you will be amazed at not only his journey back, but also what he turns his life into and how he now serves others. The book makes you look at your own life to consider how you would react under the same set of circumstances. The book left me wondering what would be next for the author, I for one look forward to hearing more in the future!
