Praying for a Miracle

This book is a true life story about a woman who grew up having great expectations of what the future holds for her. Isabella, just like most other young ladies was having idealistic prospects as to the type of person her man should be. At first, it seemed like everything was already divinely programmed and she couldn’t have asked for a better man. However, the man she assumed was her knight in shining armor, someone who ticked all the boxes for her, and loved her deeply or so she thought. Unknown to Isabella, it was all a mirage.

Being diagnosed with cancer could be terrifying news to anyone but to be abandoned by the same man who promised to stick with you in sickness and in health, and cutting you off from your child is an experience no one should be made to pass through.

Praying for a Miracle When it’s Hopeless is an emotional book that will bring even the stone-hearted to tears. It teaches lots of lessons and can be an inspiration to anyone who is hit by life’s vicissitudes and encourage them not to lose hope.
