The Will to Live: Best Survival Memoirs

1 Comment 11 July 2014

cancersurvivors_400Summer is undeniably a season for exploration and reflection. Few things ignite the spark to get out of our comfort zone or to move past hurdles than experiencing the real-life stories of others who’ve overcome unforeseen adversity to reach new personal heights. Inspiration abounds through these reads, from the coming-of-age-amid-turmoil story in A House in the Sky to the story of a soldier who refused to surrender to wartime horror in Unbroken.
