Big Shoes: A Young Widowed Mother's Memoir is the compelling story of Lisa Bradshaw and her husband, Wesley, who met as children and were married nearly 11 years. Big Shoes is a raw and candid look at the breaking hearts of two people in love, fighting for the life they have built with their young son. Bradshaw and her husband struggle as they courageously navigate his mysterious illness and attempt to prepare her and their son for a life without Wesley.

Bradshaw shares the extreme lows and eventual triumphs that follow his death, including her new life as a widowed single mother, dating for the first time since college, crossing the abyss of grief and founding The DON'T WAIT Project® to help spread the message of living a DON'T WAIT life.

Big Shoes is not just a story of death and loss, it is about prevailing and finding true happiness, not in spite of what happens to us but because of what happens to us.
