Everyone has a bending point—
the off-kilter edge where our lives either threaten to fracture or we stand and refuse to quit. Beth has zigzagged the planet interviewing people about their bending points and how they press onward through pain, loss, and the unimaginable. How do we really come back from adversity?

Riveting, and inspiring, Bend wrestles with anger, revenge, purpose, and hope. How do people begin again? Discover how you too can finish stronger than anyone imagined. Recapture fresh strength and resolve as you sway, lean, and bend, but do not break.
