About the Book

This narrative is about the death of a mother with four young daughters—two of them teenagers—and three sons in the navy. One daughter was in college at Delaware State University and was betrayed by a special college friend, which caused a dramatic breakup between the two. With tears in her eyes and a saddened broken heart, the older sister, Marian, sacrificed everything back home, including leaving her two younger sisters, to complete her education in Atlanta, Georgia. With the help of the Holy Spirit and a newfound relationship, which became her husband, Marian began to heal and become whole again. Toward the later years of her life, she revisits her earlier years of difficulties and hardships and ponders how far she and her family have come. She realizes that the most important side of life is that God will be there with us always. Just pray!
