Emmy Award winner Rita Coburn Whack's writing has been favorably compared to the work of Maya Angelou. In Meant to Be, Whack tells the story of a wise young woman named Patience who is about to embark upon a journey of the soul. When a traumatic incident causes Patience to lose sight of God's path, she must find a way to regain her spirituality and cross the bridge into womanhood. With a heartfelt dual narration, listeners will savor this tale of reflection and spiritual awakening.
