Review of "A Special Gift"
Wanda Brown's life began spiralling out of control after the death of her father at age eleven. Raped by the age of twelve, beaten, cheated on, robbed, lost credit and foreclosure were just some of the awful things she would have to endure. Wanda had a strong relationship with her higher power that helped her to persevere despite the obstacles life threw at her. But there was one wonderful moment that she prayed for, the birth of her son, Joshua. The two shared a special bond, and he was the only male in her life that she could rely on and trust. Tragically he collapsed and died playing the game he loved, basketball. This is another story of how a strong faith can help a person to overcome even the grief of losing a child. 3 Stars
