A story that readers are calling powerful.

Hello Strength Within Surviving By the Grace Of God the second edition has received five stars from fifteen book clubs. I am not bragging about this I am truly happy. The novel began as a five page essay that turned into a 76 page essay. All people young, old and as far away as Canada are calling this story powerful. It is an invigorating and heartfelt story that will bring tears to your eyes. Numerous readers have said they can relate to the story while others have said they could not imagine a life filled with so much sadness.

 

 I will leave you with a little tidbit from the book, can you imagine you are twenty one years of age attending college. You come back to your room to see yellow post its covering your door " call home, call your aunt, call your grandmother " oblivious to what you are about to learn. When you make the call you never,never would imagine that your only brother attempted suicide at the age of twenty. Nobody saw it coming. That was one of many tragedies that my life suffered from before the age of twenty three.
