ATLANTA, Ga. -- ‘A Love Story, How God Pursued Me and Found Me,’ authored by co-founder of Childspring International, Samantha Ryan Chandler approaches second anniversary of publication and is still going strong.
Married for 22 years to a powerful and wealthy man who planned her demise for 4 years, Samantha Ryan Chandler was devastated by the annihilation called divorce. The tale of her life is powerfully portrayed in her book: ‘A Love Story, How God Pursued Me and Found Me.’ Originally published in February of 2011, the book has since been a finalist for the National Indie Excellence Awards, garnered numerous 5 star reviews on Amazon.com, and an Amazon Best seller, which is still the topic of multiple interviews and discussions, most recently being featured on Good Morning Ozarks and World Talk Radio, among other stations.
One of the most talked about points of the book is the chapter, ‘When Pollyanna Marries Darth Vader.’ As shocking as it sounds to some people, Chandler has realized that her marital experience of massive betrayal, greed, and fear isn’t as abnormal as people might believe. In fact, she was quoted saying, “I have found it to be quite fashionable for the extreme wealthy to throw away a wife of many years by discrediting and rewriting truth.”
Her story is as disturbing and unsettling as it is uplifting and gratifying. It tells about a girl from Nowhere, Louisiana who finds her way from humble beginnings to dining with presidents and living with the rich, only to find her trust betrayed by those she trusted most. Blessed with an almost unquenchable optimism and a unique sense of humor, Ms. Chandler writes of a life that speaks to those who have encountered abuse, unfairness and anguish. One reviewer declared it, “is as powerful as ‘Letters to God,’ as heart wrenching as ‘Nobody's Child,’ and as touching as ‘Pay It Forward,’ with Helen Hunt.”
The book is featured on Samantha’s website where she also displays past interviews, snippets of her story, and contact information:
