"This may be the book that changes your life."—Siobhan Fallon, author of You Know When the Men Are Gone “The saint of Staten Island” (People magazine) shares the inspirational story of how she’s changing the world, one child at a time. Over a decade ago, Elissa Montanti was reeling from the loss of several loved ones when she decided to work past her grief by collecting school supplies for Bosnian children. Then a U.N. ambassador showed her a photo of Kenan, a young boy who had lost both arms and one leg to a landmine. Elissa invited Kenan and his mother into her home, arranging free airfare, prosthetics, and medical care. Operating out of her apartment’s walk-in closet, Elissa’s Global Medical Relief Fund has since helped more than one hundred and fifty children from twenty-two countries injured in war zones and natural disasters around the world. I’ll Stand by You recounts Elissa’s remarkable story and how—in helping these children—she healed herself.

They began having feelings for each other, even though they each tried to convince themselves it was the wrong time to get involved. Wyatt was sure he didn't have time to keep a lady from New York City safe on a farm in Kansas. Regardless of how determined they were, they soon found out things don't always go as planned. In fact, since they'd met, it seemed very little was even as it seemed, let alone going as planned.
