Official NFAA Editorial Review
Roslyn Franken's Meant to Be is inspiring. That is seen immediately from the Table of Contents as the chapter titles lay out on the page an overview of two lives in a way that takes readers' breaths away. In the Introduction and in the pages to follow, Franken recounts the story of her parents, John and Sonja, as they live through unimaginable, nightmarish, life-threatening events with courage, bravery, and resilience. The inclusion of beautiful family photos pulls the reader into the story of these two incredible souls as they live their separate lives, then meet and begin a letter-filled courtship that changes their lives forever. Countless life lessons follow, and these eventually influence and help the author through her own challenges in later years. Franken leaves readers with a treasure trove of uplifting words of wisdom related to Power of Choice and Power of Perseverance, citing how her parents used both throughout their lives, and how she herself exercised that power in her own life. A beautiful, moving book that will touch the heart.
