Believe. A message that still taunts her years after the passing of her daughter. In the days of her daughter's illness, she considered herself a seeker, open to the possibilities of prayer and faith.
Now cynical and guarded, she is forced to reexamine her beliefs and relive her past when an old love resurfaces, with a sick child of his own.
Believe is a story that examines fractures to our foundations in the face of tragedy. It is a story that asks if prayers are always answered, but often in ways we do not see.
NOTE: Despite the spiritual tone of this work, please be aware it contains strong language.
Believe is the story of one woman's loss and the emotions and feelings she goes through on her journey of healing. You will go through all of those emotions with her and if you have ever lost anyone you were close to, you will know exactly where she is coming from. It's hard not to question what you believe after you lose someone and I thought the author did an excellent job of portraying this.
Shelly Hickman wrote and narrated this book and I really enjoyed both the writing and the narration. Her voice is clear and crisp and the emotion in the writing comes through in the narration.
From the title, it might be assumed that this is a spiritual book but it is not. There is strong language involved. This book is about hope and healing and I really enjoyed it.

I thought the author did a great job of putting into a story the different emotions and experiences that happen when you lose someone you love. You start to question things you might not have questioned before. Believe is well written and will keep your attention to the very end. This is not a romantic book or a spiritual book. It is simply a book that will give you hope.
