Heart of a Hawk: One family's sacrifice & journey toward healing
by Deborah H. Tainsh
David and Deborah Tainsh were living the happiest years of their lives until the dark morning of February 12, 2004, when a six a.m. knock at the door brought the news that their son, Sergeant Patrick Tainsh, had been killed in Iraq. Patrick, David’s only child, was the pride of his life. He was the son who overcame a rebellious, drug-addicted youth to become an outstanding U.S. Army Cavalry Scout, posthumously awarded the Bronze and Silver Stars for saving the lives of his commanding officer and other soldiers before succumbing to his own wounds.
In the wake of their loss, David and Deborah battle horrific grief and anger while trying to hold their marriage—and one another—together in an unforgettable journey toward healing. A portion of the proceeds from Heart of a Hawk is donated to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, a nonprofit organization that provides grief support to the families of fallen military personnel.
Heart of a Hawk received the Spirit of Freedom Award from Military Writers Society of America.
