Review: A Love Story by:Samantha Ryan Chandler


About the Book:
The tale of Samantha Ryan Chandler's life is evocatively portrayed in her book: A Love Story, How God Pursued Me and Found Me. It tells of a life that is as disturbing and unsettling as it is uplifting and, in the end, gratifying. How "A girl from Nowhere, Louisiana" finds her way from such humble beginnings to live and walk amongst presidents and the supremely rich, only to find her trust and faith betrayed by those that she loved and trusted the most. She would be tested to the point where she began to doubt her own sanity and, at the moment of her greatest desperation and doubt, she was found by God and brought back from the brink of hopeless despair. Blessed with an almost unquenchable optimism and a unique sense of humor, she relates the story of a life that will speak to those who have encountered abuse, unfairness and anguish. Her love for her children and her faith in God carried her through a crucible of fire and in the end, made her a better, stronger person, ready to carry on with a life that is again filled with love, joy and laughter. A Love Story, How God Pursued Me and Found Me will both inspire you and touch your heart.


About the Author:
 Samantha Ryan Chandler was born in a colorful town in Louisiana, which helped shape her view of life; to "live life and live it large". A series of divine interactions led Samantha to co-found a children's ministry Childspring International, formerly called Children's Cross Connection. The organization brings children with severe deformities or life threatening illnesses to the United States for donated surgeries and medical care. She now divides her time between North Carolina and Georgia.




My Review:
 Samantha Ryan Chandler has written a book  that is sure to get you thinking not only about yourself but thinking about your soul and how certain things that happen in your life don't happen by accident or coincidence. Samantha didn't grow up in a Christian home so finding her way to God may prove to be difficult. But in the end find Him, she did. With all of the trials and tribulations any of us would of had to endure she endured them to the bitter end of the journey to find the one true God and bitter turned into bittersweet when at last she landed at His feet. 
 In her book she shares with us the journey and all it had taken to get to this point along with all the people she met along the way. She brings us along on this spiritual walk where she has met angels and stared evil in the face. She described the home she grew up in as eery. And coming home to it after a night of trick-or-treating was scarier than being in dark going to neighbors homes to ask for candy. Come along with Samantha as she takes you with her on this journey and shows you how even the people that don't have the best start in the end...... come out the victor!
