Story by story, letter by letter, Margaret Terry uncovered powerful pictures in her own life of the one truth that could help carry her friend Deb from this life to the next. Together they found renewed hope in the ways God shows up right to the very end. Which is where they found the miracle they'd been praying for all along. In each other.
About the Book
Dear Deb shows how two ordinary women found the miracles of hope, love, and friendship.
What do you say to a friend who has only a few months to live? The day Deb announced she had inoperable lung cancer, author Margaret Terry agreed to send her encouraging words and do something she had never done before—believe in a miracle. Margaret looked deep into the well of her own life to find encouragement Deb could relate to. She wrote Deb things they might have shared if they had more time, secret stories of vulnerability and loss, of love and forgiveness.
Dear Deb showcases the power of a good story told with an open and faithful heart. Readers will feel connected with their loves and losses, their hopes and dreams, and reconnect with the wonder of everyday miracles. They will laugh and they will weep when a father and daughter reconnect after a twenty-year silence. They will cheer when forgiveness is redefined in the brokenhearted aftermath of divorce. They will sense on every page that hope and strength are within their grasp.
Most of all, after readers close this book, they will remember those ordinary moments that make life extraordinary, the ones we all share when we open our hearts to finding love and joy in unexpected places. And, they will remember that if we look really hard, we can find miracles.
Dear Deb is a celebration of life even when the odds are stacked against it.
