ABOUT THIS BOOK

Heather Barlow has always been idealistic, and now she's finally ready to make a difference by setting sail to Uganda for a medical mission trip.  Upon arrival, however, Heather  realizes that she is unprepared to face the disease, famine, and misery she encounters everywhere.  The overcrowded refugee camps and orphanages seem overwhelming until she meets Ian McCollum, who is also working with the medical staff.   Ian is the only one who can see beyond the horror and help Heather change the world by helping one person at a time -  even at great cost to one's own self.

Bestselling author Lurlene McDaniel expertly crafts a heart-wrenching story of love and sacrifice in this prequel to Angel of Hope.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

LURLENE McDANIEL began writing inspirational novels about teenagers facing life-altering situations when her son was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. “I saw firsthand how chronic illness affects every aspect of a person’s life,” she has said. “I want kids to know that while people don’t get to choose what life gives to them, they do get to choose how they respond.”

Lurlene McDaniel’s novels are hard-hitting and realistic, but also leave readers with inspiration and hope. Her bestselling books have received acclaim from readers, teachers, parents, and reviewers. They include The Year of Luminous Love and its companion, The Year of Chasing Dreams; Don’t Die, My Love; Till Death Do Us Part; Hit and Run; Telling Christina Goodbye; True Love: Three Novels; and The End of Forever.

Lurlene McDaniel lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Visit her at lurlenemcdaniel.com and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
