Remarks & Reviews

In Their Own Words...

This book brings encouragement to those who have dealt with betrayal, sickness, abandonment, abuse, and became victorious with God’s grace. Veronie, I applaud your attempt to allow individuals voices to be heard with the possibility of reaching others that are voiceless. May God continue to Bless you.

Have we not all at some point in our lives felt the ominous cloud of despair? Well, these stories will take you on a journey toward hope unparallel. Each different, but yet somewhat familiar in the stark acceptance, and reality of how life can totally unhinge the best of us. These extraordinary women allow us an opportunity to glimpse their pain, and perhaps find some sense of shared community within. Dr. Lawrence's foresight of realizing the need to pen this book of H.O.P.E. is indeed heart-wrenching, but more importantly a cathartic gift of emotional release.

This book was wanted and needed. I may not have experienced the same life stories but I was able to relate.

I stayed up until 2AM reading the book last night. As I read each story all I could say to myself was My God, My God. These were stories of faith, strength and courage. These women's journeys were so powerful, the words leaped off the page like a dagger to the heart. This book is a blessing and if you take a chance you won't be disappointed.


I've finished this masterpiece!!! I'm not sure if you realize the level of insight that you have and the depth that this book goes to in order to reach the soul of the reader. I truly enjoyed reading the book. It made me look at some hard truths about myself and other people that I know. Sometimes, it's hard to put in words all that you truly feel but it's terrific to have a book such as this to let you know that Hope is always there and you are Never alone.

I enjoyed this book. It is worth reading, being able to read stories from other women, who wanted to share the struggles and pain that they experience everyday. It touched my heart, how open they all were. When reading this book you can identify with at least one story. Purchase the book and give it to someone who might be experiencing the same things.
