“This is the story of the worst thing that can possibly happen to you. It would be too shattering to read were it not also the story of the best thing that could ever happen to anyone. OUT OF THE CANYON serves as evidence that life sometimes hides the most precious gift inside the very heart of darkness.”
"[An] intensely affecting first memoir....A powerful account of our ability to recover from emotional devastation and love again, this book will appeal to anyone who has experienced personal tragedy, those who can appreciate finding a life partner under unexpected circumstances, and those who don't mind a good cry."
"OUT OF THE CANYON tells the Dailys' infinitely sad, improbably uplifting story. The book is one thing - a well-told account of a brave, unlikely recovery from the unthinkable. But stronger than words are the Dailys themselves; simply being in their presence — compassionate and humble — is like being surrounded by an enormous grace. It is the convincing exclamation point on their book."
“How can a book about unspeakable tragedy be uplifting and joyful? Allison and Art Daily’s story manages to be that and more. It offers hope to all of us who grieve and stands as a tribute to the human spirit and the possibilities that exist even when we feel that there are none. Out of the Canyon shows us hope, inspiration, love, and yes, even joy.”
–Ann Hood, author of Comfort
“Out of the Canyon is a riveting and powerful witness to the healing power of love and spirit over the worst, most unimaginable loss. It both shatters your heart and deeply heals it all at once. Reading it will be a profound gift to all who have ever lost a loved one, or may.”
–Sonia Choquette, author of The Answer Is Simple
