“Rhapsodic. . . . In her efforts to recover, [Cox] brings both the unique perspective of an athlete who spent a lifetime exploring her physical limits and the determination of someone who braved painful research into the body’s ability to survive the cold. Her journey here proves the strength of her heart.” —Booklist (starred review)

“Lynne Cox’s heart beats with magical new powers as she swims through the most personal challenge of her dazzling career. This lyrical book is an ode to water, to guts, and—yippee!—to love. Dive in, now, for a most glorious adventure.” —Lynn Sherr, author of Swim: Why We Love the Water

“Intimate. . . . This satisfying journey through a world-class athlete’s heart-centered crisis is a warm tale of recovery and even finding love.” —Publishers Weekly
