She inspired millions as she valiantly fought advancedbreast cancer after being diagnosed only days before the 2004 election. She touched hundreds of similarly grieving families when her own son, Wade, died tragically at age sixteen in 1996. Now she shares her experiences inSaving Graces, an incandescent memoir of Edwards trials, tragedies, and triumphs, and of how various communities celebrated her joys and lent her steady strength and quiet hope in darkertimes.Edwards writes about growing up in a military family, where she learned how to make friends easily in dozens of new schools and neighborhoods around the world and came to appreciate the unstintinghelp and comfort naval families shared.

Edwards reminiscences of her years as a mother focus on the support she and other parents offered one another, from everyday favors to the ultimate test of her owncommunitys strength-their compassionate response to the death of the Edwards teenage son, Wade, in 1996. Her descriptions of her husbands campaigns for Senate, president, and vicepresident offer a fascinating perspective on the groups, great and small, that sustain our democracy.

Her fight with breast cancer, which stirred an outpouring of support from women across the country, has once againaffirmed Edwards belief in the power of community to make our lives better and richer.
