A mother’s love for her child is one of the strongest bonds in existence. In Better, Not Bitter: The Tiffany Miller Story (published by AuthorHouse), author and mother De Anna Komppa and her love for her daughter are put to the test.

“This is the true story about my daughter’s life,” explains Komppa. “My experience with my daughter’s illness, life, and death inspired me to write this story.”

Komppa shares her daughter’s story, writing of a little girl named Tiffany and an angel sent from Heaven. Better, Not Bitter is an enthralling, heartbreaking story about the love between a mother and child and a fight for life.

Tiffany’s disease progressed and she required a liver/bowel transplant, which was rare at the time. Komppa writes about a medical system that failed to help, and how this little girl became a pioneer. Komppa’s community raised over $700,000 in just a few months as Tiffany’s story played out in front of the media.

Better, Not Bitter is a story that reaches beyond life. Even in the unfortunate and untimely death of Tiffany, her mission continues through a mother whose life and heart was forever changed.

“It is not what happens to you but how you deal with it,” says Komppa. “Taking the good from the bad and making your life, better not bitter.”
