A Reflection of Strength (published by iUniverse) by author Arnaud Bellevue is inspired by the eulogy from former State Senator Reverend H. Flake who honored the deceased’s many accomplishments to the community. It had become apparent to him how life is short, marking the starting point to his writing of his own life story.
In this moving memoir, the author is given an opportunity to reflect on his past and build his future. He tells how he came to America as an immigrant to live his dream. He narrates how he left his home country and his struggles to adapt to the American ways. He also talks about the decade-long fight that he and his wife, Irene, experienced against the illness that took her life.
Bellevue’s belief in perseverance paid off as he managed to overcome the obstacles that he experienced in life. All that he had been through helped shape the man that he is today. He embodies the strength that a young immigrant must rely on as he navigates the world. His story allows a variety of people to relate to his experiences and take away a lesson of perseverance. He has shown it when he turns from an aspiring athlete into a young family man and eventually, as a caregiver to his ailing wife.
Greatly inspiring, A Reflection of Strength chronicles a unique tale of one remarkable man. It lets the readers know how one’s story have the power to change lives and help them grow as better individuals.
