A Medical Drama of Tragedy and Triumph
“I just want you to understand.” Dr. Rosen paused and then looked directly at me again. “How many times do you think you can run across Highway 401 and not get killed?!”
As the happy young wife and mother of two babies, Ester Zirkind was content. There was no reason to think that her life’s trajectory would be anything but continued smooth sailing; that the calm waters of her existence would suddenly begin rising upward and into a raging tsunami of horror and pain…
But much to her disillusionment and dismay, Ester found herself tossed into the stormy seas of hospitals, medical procedures, desperate prayers, and tear-splattered waiting rooms. Everything was spiraling out of control: her health, the safety and well-being of her family, the precious child-bearing years of her life… The only thing left in her hands, or, as she discovered, the only thing that had ever really been in her hands to begin with, was how she would choose to react to her circumstances.
Where Is the Daughter I Raised? is the poignant, exquisitely-written, true account of one woman’s experiences through illness and tragedy, and ultimately, by her digging deep within the reserves of her faith, to triumphant self-discovery and a renewed and genuine commitment to her Creator. It is not a book for the faint of heart, but for those authentic enough to look at life and emunah straight in the eye.
Contains sensitive material; recommended for mature readers only.
