What others are saying:

“Grab the tissue box when you read this beautifully written story about Chrystal Smallwood’s experience with pregnancy loss. Any writer knows one of the most difficult things about writing is knowing where to start a story — how much background information to reveal in the beginning of the book vs revelations throughout. Chrystal did it perfectly her first time out. She allows her readers to gain insight into just how devastating pregnancy loss can be, by revealing a determined little girl holding fast to her childhood dreams as she grows into a woman. Faith is the key in this story — a deep-seeded faith that grows as Chrystal faces several traumatic experiences. This is a must-read, not only for anyone who has suffered a pregnancy loss, but anyone who may need a faith-boost. The story shows how life can go full-circle, just not the way one plans it.”P.R. Garlick
