The day before leaving home to join the elite swim team at the University of Notre Dame, Ry Beville is involved in an auto accident that will put his entire family on hold. His parents rush to the emergency room only to find out the prognosis isn't good - traumatic brain injury with partial paralysis - potential career ending injuries.
As Ry endures months of speech therapy, physical therapy and psychological counseling, his father Don reflects on a previous trauma he kept secret for years. With his son's future hanging in the balance, Don must face his own past head on.
The Boy Who Broke Records will take the reader on a riveting journey showing us how to reweave our lives when tragedy seeks us out. With wisdom and humor, Don Beville narrates an uplifting story of courage, discovery, and acceptance to separate old pain from new beginnings. He realizes that there is a thin membrane that separates life from death.
