Raw.  Honest.  Painful to read.  Psychologically intense yet informative.  How Eleanor Vincent relived her story to share it with others is an amazing feat.  Swimming with Maya: A Mother’s Story is Eleanor Vincent‘s recounting of the tragic death of her daughter, Maya.

From Vincent’s vivid descriptions of Maya, the reader meets a beautiful young woman with her future waiting to be fulfilled.  On the brink of entering UCLA on a full scholarship to the Theater Arts Program.  Her dream come true.  Home from community college on spring break, Maya plans a day with friends at a local park.  Innocently, she and another young woman chance to ride a horse bareback, the ride ending in a tragic accident and sending Maya to a local emergency room.
