All American Mommy Top Pick Book: Hope Faith and Charlie

Looking for a good book to curl up with? Looking for a story to inspire your life? Hope Faith and Charlie is the book that you need to read! I had a hard time putting the book down and finished it in less than 3 days. The author, Deirdre Carey has a writing style that I enjoy and I was captivated by her true story from the first page.

I highly recommend this book to anyone! We all face challenges in our lives and reading this true story proves that the power of prayer, the power of faith, strength, and courage can move mountains. Hope Faith and Charlie touched my heart in so many ways.

Hope Faith and Charlie is an inspirational journey of one child's courageous battle with cancer, his family's fight to save his life, and the blessings that happened along the way. John and Deirdre had been married five years and were doting parents of two beautiful, happy and healthy sons. Jay, age two, and Charlie, who was just shy of six-months old. Life was good: they had a strong marriage, solid careers, a comfortable home, and a beautiful little family created out of love. Then the sky fell in. In an instant, their life together was turned upside down with the discovery that Charlie had a massive brain tumor. Further diagnosis would uncover a rare form of brain and spine cancer that would more than likely take his precious life far too soon.

This inspiring story of love, devotion, perseverance and survival takes you on the emotional roller coaster ride their family endured as they valiantly fought to save their child's life. It's about how one child defied the incredible odds and invaluable lessons learned through this life-changing experience. It will renew your faith as you witness a true miracle unfold.
