At forty-two years old, Valerie Giglio was heading for a bright future as both a successful lawyer and professional vocalist with two CDs to her name, when out of nowhere, she suffered a brain stem stroke that ravaged her life and caused her world to spin out of control. Completely paralyzed on one side, confined to a wheelchair, her singing voice stolen from her at the height of her career, Valerie was devastated.  But with fierce determination and fortitude, and the support of her loving family and a wonderful healthcare team, Valerie faced down every setback and obstacle in her path. Overcoming paralysis and regaining her singing voice, she returned to the stage just one year later. The story of this woman’s miraculous journey allows you to travel with Valerie on her path to an extraordinary recovery. Singing In My Own Key is a story of hope and faith that will leave you deeply inspired.

"Giglio more than meets her goal of showing readers that "miracles happen"... Deciding that "the only limitations were the ones I put on myself," Giglio hopes her story and struggles will help others "reach for the stars and dream big."

 

- Publisher's Weekly 

"Singing In My Own Key" truly is a remarkable work of standing inspiration for all, detailing the mental strength and dedication to overcome all frustrations.  Readers of all genres should definitely add Singing In My Own Key to their list."

 

-  ★★★★1/2, Portland Book Review 

"I cannot recommend Singing In My Own Key: A Vocalist's Triumph Over Stroke by Valerie L. Giglio highly enough. This is a book for all who suffer huge setbacks and think they will never recover or that their lives are over. Valerie proves this is not so...ever!  "Sometimes the only road worth travelling is the hardest one."  Wise, wise words. "

 

★★★★★, Reader's Favorite

"Singing In My Own Key" is a personal and profound meditation on human resilience. In her moments of darkness, she lit a light with music, which she has shared with the world to illuminate an eternal truth: the human spirit cannot be defeated. A moving and brilliant narrative."

- Kabir Sehgal, New York Times bestselling author & Multi-Grammy Award winner
