Breathe: When Life Takes Your Breath Away
By Angela Burgin Logan and Samson Logan

From the publisher, BroadStreet Publishing:

“In this inspirational, hope-filled memoir, one woman battles the good advice of others versus the God-advice she senses in her spirit.

The life that Angela Burin had prayed for seemed to be at hand when she finally married her love, Samson Logan, and the couple learned they were expecting their first child. The Queen City couple’s life stared to unravel soon after as her dream of becoming a mother turned into a nightmare.
Angela sought the advice and help of her doctor when he experienced mysterious and unusual symptoms, but the doctor said it was all in her head. In her heart, Angela knew that something terrible could happen to her and her baby.

In Breathe, Angela and Samson share their soul-stirring experience in a beautiful but gut-wrenching account that will give you a glimpse of hope in the darkest of times.”
