OPTION B Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Elisa Donovan

Personal Growth • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Elisa Donovan's palpable empathy adds to her authentic delivery of this profound and personal audio. With relaxed pacing and conversational phrasing, she makes the pathos and advice unfold with unfailing grace. Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg's reactions to the unexpected death of her husband in 2015 constitute the core narrative, which features descriptions of how she, and others who suffered through tragedy, found ways to respect themselves, avoid self-destructive ruts, and identify a new direction for their lives. She recounts how she learned to be proactive with her friends' sometimes crazy reactions, how she helped her children, and how she eventually integrated her husband's memory into her life. The heartfelt wisdom in this audio, along with Donovan's sensitive performance, make it a high-impact listen for people suffering from all manner of loss and trauma. T.W.
