"A horrific 1993 car accident left the newly married authors with injuries that included head trauma and the loss of wife Krickitt’s memory. The story is about how her husband persevered to rebuild their marriage—as a stranger, at first—and how their Christian faith helped them persevere. Written from the husband’s point of view, the book describes the contradictory roles a man must accept when caring for an impaired partner and the struggles they both had with the notoriety of their story, which became a movie. John McLain’s resonant voice and theatrical chops highlight the inspirational aspects of the couple’s story without overplaying the melodrama. His splendid interpretation uncovers more emotional depth in the husband’s perspective than would be obvious from the narrative and dialogue alone."
