It is a testimony to the triumph that women may achieve through long struggle. The crucible of suffering a cruel, debilitating disease is the backdrop for this continuing saga.

“Changes: From Spiritual Hopelessness to Spiritual Hope: One Woman’s Search for God: The Discovery” (published by AuthorHouse), the new book by Carlotta Maria Shinn-Russell, looks at the tragedy of losing a loved one, anger at God, the journey away from God and the journey back to him.

“It is a testimony to the triumph that women may achieve through long struggle,” Shinn-Russell says of her book. “The crucible of suffering a cruel, debilitating disease is the backdrop for this continuing saga.”

Praise for “Changes: From Spiritual Hopelessness to Spiritual Hope”:

“After the flood, in Noah's day, God set a rainbow in the clouds (Genesis 9:13, 14). There is a rainbow in every cloud of life. Carlotta Russell has shown this so vividly. What an encouraging book for everyone; especially, those going through their ‘Gethsemane’ experience. Mrs. Russell has dealt with the depth of sorrow brought on by the monster called cancer. Even with that cloud hanging over one's life, she has shown that there is a rainbow in the cloud. Sage's journey from the depths of despair to heights of glory in the Lord will inspire everyone who is going through a difficult time. It is a MUST read.”
