“Everyone faces adversity and these adversities help form each person,” Lanni says. “It takes courage, love, compassion and faith to overcome the obstacles we face.”

Adversities are a fact of life for many people. How one handles adversity, however, can affect the outcome of the situation. In the new bookWhen Lilacs Bloom” (published by WestBow Press), author Nicholas Lanni’s boyhood memories inspire a story of awakened faith and hope in spite of adversity.

Mike and Angel are courageous despite the impossible situations they encounter. The couple keeps their faith and love alive and is able to overcome the obstacles in their way. Despite hard times, they inspire those around them with their enduring faith and love.

“Progress without consideration of the consequences can lead to social despair,” Lanni says. “Only compassion for others can lead us away from social despair and closer to the Word of God.”

Through his short story, Lanni encourages readers not to judge others on appearances or first impressions. Everyone has stories to tell, he says, as he reminds readers that some stories end badly and that life’s circumstances and the choices people make must be dealt with in faith and love.

“Everyone faces adversity and these adversities help form each person,” Lanni says. “It takes courage, love, compassion and faith to overcome the obstacles we face.”
