Hannah Luce, Daughter Of Ron Luce, Signs Book Deal To Tell Story Of Surviving Plane Crash That Killed Her Friends

Hannah Luce, the lone survivor of a May 2012 small plane crash in Kansas, who crawled out of a burning aircraft and lost several friends in the devastating accident, has signed a deal with Atria/Howard Books for an inspiring memoir to be titled Fields of Grace. She is the daughter of Ron Luce, co-founder and president of Teen Mania Ministries.

Luce’s book will be published on Oct. 22 and will detail her struggles with her faith, her coming of age inside an evangelical home, her decision to join her father’s ministry outreach to teens, and her miraculous survival and recovery following the accident. It will also serve as a tribute and testament to the lives of the dear friends who perished in the catastrophic plane crash and reveal how their memory continues to inspire all that Luce does.

“Despite what I have been through, mine is a story of hope. Hope from knowing that, even through great adversity, we can live good and purposeful lives. It is the story of perseverance and finding light in life’s darkest moments. Above all, it is a love story about three friends whose bond cannot be broken by death,” says Luce.

Judith Curr, President of the Atria Publishing Group, commented: “Themes of friendship, recovery, faith, guilt, purpose, and ultimately the importance of moving forward while never forgetting the past will have readers looking deeply at their own lives and relationships. This will also be the first title published as collaboration between Atria and Howard Books, and we look forward to helping Hannah find wide readership in both the general and Christian markets.”

The deal, for North American rights, was negotiated by Atria Senior Editor Sarah Durand with Luce’s literary agent, Brandi Bowles at Foundry Media.
