Many of the stories I will be sharing with you have one very special similarity—my eldest daughter, Vicky
(PRWEB) January 06, 2012
“There is nothing we can do”, were the doctor’s ominous words which became the catalyst for a promise made by a young mother of a special needs child. Based on one couple’s foundation of faith, hope, love, and exceptional courage, the new Xulon Press book, The Promise ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61904-263-6; $22.99, hardcover, 978-1-61904-264-3), will evoke a plethora of emotions as author Jacqueline Adell Selph reveals the triumphs and tragedies her family encountered while embracing the blessings of having Vicky, their “miracle child.” Organized chronologically and in short order, this book aims to sweep readers away on an exciting rollercoaster ride.
“Many of the stories I will be sharing with you have one very special similarity—my eldest daughter, Vicky,” the author says. “Vicky was born a special needs child. Her story is so intertwined with ours that I must also tell you about myself and the other members of our family as well.”
The book has earned rave reviews thus far from many who cite Selph’s writing style as candid and emotional. Says reviewer Katie Rosenfarb, “Undoubtedly, this is one of the most beautifully and poignantly written love stories I have ever read. Heart wrenching at times yet full of laughter and excitement, this book tugged at my heartstrings in a manner which would not allow me to put it down. Women of every generation, especially those desiring to become mothers, should follow Jackie’s selfless and courageous example and strive to love with Vicky’s precious heart. This memoir has taught me invaluable life lessons that I hope to one day pass on to my own children.”
Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 8,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order The Promise through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
