Carmel Thomason is an author, journalist and speaker whose writing explores how we can live out the gospel by focusing on the extraordinary to be found in the everyday. She has written Against the Odds (BRF 2014), Believe in Miracles (BRF, 2016) and Every Moment Counts (DLT, 2011) and has collaborated with the Archbishop of York on Faith Stories and Hope Stories.
This book contains some extraordinarily powerful and compelling stories from those who have faced huge challenges in their lives. They tell of how they have overcome them, and in reading them many will find hope and fresh resolve to face their own situations - or to understand a little more about the experience of others. I recommend it. The Very Revd John Witcombe, Dean of Coventry
