Encore - Softcover
A young couple triumphs over a dreaded illness
By Miriam Dansky (Author)
It was the best of times: a young couple whose life was a continuous sunrise, expecting their third child, with not even a hint of trouble. Then the sky clouded over. Then came symptoms, treatment, diagnosis, verification. Her kidneys were failing. Life would never be the same - and might even be coming to an end.
This is a story of the incredible strength, courage, and resourcefulness of a husband and wife, left almost on their own and given little hope. They would not surrender to the "inevitable." With deepening devotion to one another and infinite faith in the mercy of the Creator, they would not give up - until the emergency call came on Shabbos evening: "A kidney is available. You must come immediately." And they did. The Concorde brought them to New York and emergency surgery vindicated their faith.
Mrs. Miriam Dansky chronicles their story like a poet. Beautifully and movingly written, this is a book that will thrill and inspire; it's for everyone, and especially for people facing illness.
