In An Instant: A Family's Journey of Love and Healing
by Lee and Bob Woodruff

Amazon.comBarnes & NobleIndieBound

In January 2006, Lee and Bob Woodruff seemed to have it all -- a happy marriage, four beautiful children, and marvelous careers. Bob had just been named co-anchor of ABC's World News Tonight, but then, while he was embedded with the military in Iraq, an improvised explosive device went off near the tank he was riding in. He and his cameraman, Doug Vogt, were hit, and Bob suffered a traumatic brain injury that nearly killed him.

In An Instant is the frank and compelling account of how Bob and Lee Woodruff's lives came together, were blown apart, and then were miraculously put together again -- and how they persevered, with grit but also with humor, through intense trauma and fear. More than a dual memoir of love and courage, In An Instant is an important, wise, and inspiring guide to coping with tragedy -- and all extraordinary drama of marriage, family, war, and nation.
