This compelling book shows how God's grace has guided the author through challenges

There is a Tomorrow: My Life has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh. It is an engaging and compelling autobiography that recounts how Burgel Mertens has seen the grace of God working through her life and sustaining her through many struggles.

Growing up in post-war Germany, Mrs. Mertens and her family suffered under communist rule, and the author risked her life at a young age to escape to West Germany. Even then, tragedy seemed to follow her family, but her faith, determination, and perseverance carried her through the many challenges that arose for her and her husband.

The consistent theme of There is a Tomorrow: My Life is God's continuous presence and the author's appreciation for the divine guidance she has seen working in her family over the years.

Burgel Mertens is a native of Germany and now resides in Alberta, Canada, with her husband, Peter. She is the mother of two children, Sylvia and Robby, and her personal interests include cooking and baking, creative art, and traveling, in addition to her writing.

The artwork on the front of this book was created by the author's older sister, Edith, and hangs above her bed as a reminder of god's watchful gaze.

There is a Tomorrow: My Life is a 58-page paperback with a retail price of $9.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0205-4. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
