Dana Marlowe Wakefield has two priorities her daughter and her career as an attorney. She is not going to tell her ex-husband about the threats on her life not when she worked so hard towards becoming the Cook County State Attorney.

I am beyond excited to be reviewing a copy of Grace Anna Sings through Broadstreet Publishers and there partnership with Netgalley:

For a few years now I have been following Grace Anna’s stories, her personality, her Charisma, her determination and her faith all shine through.

From the beginning Grace Anna proved to be a little warrior. She has endured surgeries, and health scares but through it all her Families Faith and her fighting Spirit would prove to be the strength they needed.

At sixteen month Grace Anna who then could barely say a three word sentence began signing, because her Mom had often sang to her when she needed comfort.

Music helped Grace Anna through pain, she learned to sing songs by Mercy Me and Natalie Grant.

Grace Anna became so popular, her determined spirit inspiring many that she was soon invited to Katie with Katie Couric.

Venues such as Facebook proved to help bring awareness to Grace Anna’s condition Conradi-Hunnermann syndrome a rare form dwarfism, but some took advantage of this, and some were cruel.

Thank you Angela Ray Rodgers for sharing your little girl with the world, she has inspired so many, myself included.

I am reviewing a copy of Well through FaithWords/Center Street and Netgalley:

When Sarah Thebarge applied to the Yale Physicians assistant program she told the admissions panel she would change the world someday.

Some decades later Sarah Thebarge finds herself on a plane reading up on Togo, somewhere she had not even heard of until she was asked to serve as a missionary in Togo serving at the Hospital Of Hope.

Just a year or two prior to her call to Togo, Sarah had been battling for her life, after being diagnosed with Cancer.

While in Togo Sarah experienced language difficulties, making conversations difficult and humorous.

By the time she had been there for six weeks Thebarge’s French had drastically improved.

Sarah Thebarge was deeply effected by her time in Togo, watching people die of conditions that were preventable in the U.S in a hospital that lacked modern equipment.

While in Togo Sarah Thebarge would battle Malaria, shed face the loss of patients. She’d see the realities of the conditions in Togo, the lack of medicines and medical equipment.

I give Well five out of five stars!
