--This is a very simple story, nothing new. It is about a battle, a struggle with God. This riveting book is the author’s testimony of how she followed her own will yet eventually turned back to God. It's her story of how she battled depression and contemplated suicide, when she was at her lowest point, but God brought her back! This is a story of contemplation, compromise and VICTORY!
