Two Steps to a New Life
Paperback | English
This little book will stir powerful emotions in the reader, and unleash tears in the eyes, as well as propound courage, faith, cheerfulness, positivity, and a smiling attitude to whatever may come. Shernaz Petigara shows to all that huge troubles, immense pain and deep anxiety can be combated with a grim determination and deep faith. There was a time, not so long ago, when she was fighting for her life in hospital. My wife and I went to visit her regularly, yet on one occasion we actually walked past her room, thinking she had been shifted to another room, whereas she was still on the same bed in the same room. We had failed to recognise her, because her skin had changed colour, her head was covered with a scarf as her hair had dropped off because of the powerful radiation treatment. We were told that one night, there was a severe crisis, and her room was full with doctors and nurses, rushing around to keep her with us. Her husband was summoned urgently, and he sat by her side and prayed. He held her hand, and prayed. Her husband and her daughter have stood by her valiantly in her hour of need. She slowly, but surely, recovered. She has fought bravely. It has been a long walk to recovery for her. The reader will, like us, wish her “God bless you”.
