“You are responsible for your life. No one’s coming in here to save you. If you don’t save yourself, it’s not going to happen.” – Abby Maslin

Abby Maslin is the bestselling author of Love You Hard: A Memoir of Marriage, Brain Injury, and Reinventing Love, a remarkable story of transformation and resilience in the wake of tragedy.
