Summary

Summary

Eight-Time Boston Marathon Winner and Paralympic Athlete Shares Her Story!

Jean Driscoll was named 25th of the top 100 women athletes in the century by Sports Illustrated for Women. Born with spina bifida (a hole in the spine), Jean was never supposed to walk. But because of her intense determination and true grit, she not only learned to walk but to fly -- in a wheelchair across the finish line.

In her autobiography, Jean chronicles her flight from physical paralysis to true spiritual freedom. She shows us what perseverance can achieve and points us to the power of a God who gives courage and hope to overcome countless obstacles.
