Author: Gladys Simmons Carson
Genre: Inspirational Memoir
When medical malpractice takes the life of her mother and the offense is dismissed as an unfortunate mistake, it rips a hole in seven-year-old Gladys’ heart and ignites fire in her anger. This act of gross negligence strips her of the joyful delight that has characterized her existence. Before she can grasp the full meaning of her loss, fate takes her on a journey through a series of harsh realities, including devastating child abuse, demeaning segregation and destructive thinking. These unsavory enemies assault her on all fronts, physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. But the child warrior uses youthful wisdom to triumph over the effects of them all. Her prize is a resurgence of bountiful joy. You may laugh or cry, but you will definitely cheer for the child warrior in TRIUMPH! A BATTLE PLAN FOR JOY.
Triumph! A Battle Plan for Joy is divided into several shorter parts, which are then divided into chapters. The whole build up of the book is logical, and it starts with the author’s childhood experiences, and then focuses on things the author learned later on in life.
The book is truly inspiring, and the writing was great too. If you ever feel down, or if you’re struggling, then this book is an excellent read.
