ABCs of Brain Injury: L Is for ‘Love You Hard’

I met Abby Maslin when she was the closing keynote speaker at the Brain Injury Association of Maryland’s 2016 annual conference. Pregnant with her second child, she was writing a book, while helping her husband deal with traumatic brain injury after a vicious attack on Capitol Hill.

The book, titled Love You Hard: A Memoir of Marriage, Brain Injury,  and Reinventing Love was just released on March 12, 2019!

You may have seen Ellen McCarthy’s article about the book and the Maslins’ ordeal in The Washington Post Style section March 25.

Tonight, March 28, Abby will be at Curious Iguana Books,  12 N. Market St. in Frederick, Md. at 7 p.m for a signing.

I plan to be there. I hope you can join me,  but if you can’t, make sure to order and read the book, because it is truly an inspirational story of resilience and how loving one another can help us heal from a devastating tragedy.
