Book Two, “The Trees Shall Clap Their Hands,” takes Verna through the rigors of Nursing School, the ordeals of a single mother on Welfare, and the unbelievable, heartbreaking loss of her girls. Through it all, Verna’s steadfast Christian faith enables her to overcome her obstacles and tribulations to triumphantly graduate as an LPN. Verna’s story is indeed one of deep faith. It is a story of determination, doubt, resolve, happiness, sorrow, pride, and overcoming. It is a human story not yet ended.
