Blurb:
Storm of Hope: God, Preeclampsia, Depression and me is a memoir told in journal entries and poetry from a mom who was diagnosed with preeclampsia. The diagnosis with her second pregnancy propelled the author into a “postpartum forest where the trees of doubt, sorrow, anger and rage loomed all around me.” What becomes to the author and her second baby gives way to hope and a way out of the darkness.

REVIEW

“Why do we only know the reason for the storms after the damage has been cleaned up? We wait and beg to God for mercy, only to realize He was in the center of it all.”

A quick read (91 pages). The author started writing her truths as poems, as she experienced the many emotions of living with and surviving preeclampsia and depression. There’s anger as she is going through the fight and hasn’t given up, there’s hope and faith, fear, guilt, dark days, and magical days.  She writes with emotion as she fights through preeclampsia, two births, and depression. Through her writings, you sense her faith in Christ was and is her daily lifeline. You can tell this was healing for the author and I’m sure others will benefit from reading. Good job!

“Life”

I love the life I live.

I love the life I live.

If I say it over and over again,

Maybe I’ll live the life I love.”

EXCERPT

A Question

 “Are you happy?”

I hear the question,

soft and steady.

It lands like an anvil at my feet.

 “Are you happy?”

I’m asked again.

The answer doesn’t come and

I wonder after all the

façade, and back and forth lies,

did I take a wrong turn somewhere?

 Or was my inner prisoner shouting

and in her screams,

she is finally heard
