V. Marcia Blair shares her personal story and profound belief that God was in complete control, helping her to overcome overwhelming life challenges. Readers will follow this journey from her homeland of Jamaica to New York City, where her struggles continued, and she faced betrayal, disillusionment and illness. Blair persevered while empowering herself by working full time and attending night school. She shares her conviction with readers, a belief that she was “CHOSEN” for a great purpose and that the struggles were just hurdles to overcome. As this intriguing story climaxes, Blair’s faithfulness pays off as God sends her the love of her life who, along with her children, church and family, supported her on this extraordinary journey of life.
When asked what inspired the author to write this book, Blair said, “I felt strongly led by God since 2017 to write my story because it was going to be one of the ways I share my testimony. No matter how broken you may feel, there is still a way to pick up the broken pieces and color.”
