Author Bessie Colvin opens the book of her life to inspire readers from all over the world with her experiences and her brave fight with her illness in My Story: The Setup. This book recounts life experiences, which highlights her early years, her family life, and her battle with cancer—a journey that reveals how God had already ordered her steps.

This book offers readers a glimpse into Colvin’s life. She grew up in a close-knit family on a farm about nine miles out in the country (the rural). She recalled how her family bonded and enjoyed every simple moment they had together. The family encountered many difficulties, but they surpassed them together with courage, determination, and a strong faith in God. At an early age, the author developed a passion for music and played the piano. She soon participated in recitals and played for church and school choirs, weddings and other events. Through hard work she finished college with a BA and an MA degree which opened doors to many great opportunities such as teaching, performing professionally and acting in community theaters. Her life was great until she was shocked with the announcement of a stage 3 cancer diagnosis.

Packed with memories, insights and lessons, My Story: The Setup is an engaging book that might appeal to a reader interested in stories that portray the lives of individuals in the rural areas back in the day as well as the lives of those who battle with cancer and living a journey already ordered and planned by God.

The front cover shows the author preparing to fix a flat tire on the truck. It's a must read to find out what really happened.
