Summary

Summary

Based in one-on-one interviews broadcast on Odyssey's signature program, Quiet Triumphs presents a tremendously personal side of well-known celebrities as they face intimate issues from breast cancer and depression to addiction and the loss of a child. From Willard Scott's confession of regular panic attacks to Judy Collin's struggle to accept her son's suicide, Mary Alice Williams demonstrates her extraordinary ability to bring out the tears of honesty in her guests.

Quiet Triumphs is a touching, joyful, practical, sometimes funny, yet always moving acknowledgment that despite the tough times, people can move ahead and live patient, strong, and faithful lives.
