In her memoir, Artis Henderson recounts not only the unlikely love story she shared with her husband Miles and her unfathomable recovery in the wake of his death --- from the dark hours following the military notification to the first fumbling attempts at new love --- but also reveals how Miles’s death mirrored her father’s death in a plane crash, which Artis survived when she was five years old and left her own mother a young widow.
