This is the story of an ordinary woman faced with extraordinary challenges and her gradual realisation that God is always by her side. Each short chapter in this book describes a new disappointment, a different shock, all the stages and steps of an aggressive cancer, how it took hold and how Mary McDonnell learned to deal with it. The loss of a baby and the distress of infertility are also part of Mary’s story. Running alongside this is an awakening of a whole new spiritual experience and the development of a completely new attitude to life and to God’s part in it. Finally, a wonderful healing that was neither expected nor prayed for. Mary’s breezy, chatty style and her positive attitude will inspire anyone who has suffered loss or illness. An ideal gift for those facing difficulties.
Mary McDonnell is a retired school teacher and lives in Dublin with her husband.
