Journey to Joy: An Inspirational Memoir (Paperback)
A story of faith, Journey To Joy chronicles the pilgrimage of a teenage girl living with visual impairment. She migrates to America from Jamaica in search of a diagnosis. As a legally blind student, Joy eventually obtains a college degree. While still reeling from the trauma of divorce and trying to keep it together for her young son and daughter, Joy loses her mother and is diagnosed two weeks later with breast cancer. She struggles to raise her children alone, while enduring chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Her suffering is soon heightened by the death of her father and sister. These losses are followed closely by the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Through the tumult of raising teenagers and various other health crises, Joy finds an outlet in her poetry. Her verses will transport you through the lows and highs of human emotions. She will have you crying and laughing as you turn the pages.
Her Christian faith enables Joy to rise above her circumstances, and to reach out to others in need. Her ability to find joy in the ashes inspires others to do the same. Her trust in God to give meaning to her trials will certainly inspire you.
