Author Marianne Barnard's life changes dramatically when she moves to a big city far away from home, falls in love and marries a much older man and climbs the corporate ladder of success. Sadly she discovers that security, love and money are not always enough to keep bitterness, pain, and terrible hardship at bay. Barnard brings a message of hope, forgiveness, and perseverance to motivate, reconcile and cope under extreme circumstances. Indeed a page-turner for young or old, non-believer or believer, keeping the reader in awe to the very end. Written from the heart, by a South African, for anyone anywhere in the world, BELIEF: The Journey of a Growing Soul.
