If you enjoy memoirs, this book is a must-read. In this gripping memoir, Jennifer Degl brings her readers on an emotional roller coaster from the decision to get pregnant—and nearly dying four times during her pregnancy—to the birth of her daughter, Joy, seventeen weeks early, and this tiny baby’s fight to survive.
On the night her daughter was born, Jennifer started a journal on a sheet of paper given to her by a nurse. Once she was discharged from the hospital, a little blue notebook—in which she wrote everything—became Jennifer’s constant companion. Five months after the birth of her daughter, Jennifer went to write in her notebook; instead, she sat down and read her journal cover to cover. That’s when she knew she had to tell this story.
A remarkable story, “From Hope to Joy” is filled with love, determination, strength, hope—and finally Joy. Grab your copy today!
