HAVE YOUR SETBACKS DETOURED YOU ENOUGH TO FIND YOUR GREATEST BLESSINGS?
Chani Barlow celebrates her 16th birthday recovering in a hospital bed, surrounded by flowers and cards, but unprepared to face her future following a car accident. A life without competitive sports feels vastly different from the life she had originally planned, and she's left to question whether she should have survived at all.
Little does Chani know that God has something specific in mind for her. Throughout Seeking Solace, God eases her initial disappointments and blesses her with a series of dreams, allowing Chani to see her future children--their hair, their eyes, and their personalities. She knows them, but it will take more than grit and determination to find them. She and her husband must battle infertility, mental health, others' opinions, and an occasionally empty wallet to make it happen, but just when faith dwindles and challenges seem insurmountable, God chooses to step in.
"Beautiful and heartbreaking at once, Seeking Solace holds both in its hands; that unspeakable emptiness--empty cradle and empty arms--and a powerful, sustaining hope. Chani Barlow ultimately leaves you with a profound peace, regardless of your own brand of thwarted plans. A tender, moving must-read if life has ever rewritten your own story."
-Angie Fenimore, New York Times Best-Selling Author
