“Stories of personal tragedy are often too painful to speak about openly, and even more painful to publish for the world to read. But Valerie Rainford’s courage in sharing her story gives hope to readers of any age or background who have suffered loss, extreme adversity, or emotional heartbreak, illustrating for them that tenacity and faith are the antidote for despair, even when brighter days seem impossible. An incredible story definitely worth devouring.”
