#15 Books That Make You Believe in the Power of the Human Spirit – Roslyn Franken

Don’t you love books that renew or affirm your belief in the human spirit? We have an amazing capacity to overcome obstacles and succeed even in the face of insurmountable obstacles. Books that make us come to know and appreciate these tales of human triumph are among the most popular to read.  They tell us about ourselves. They remind us of what we can accomplish and what we can withstand. 

Our guest today has a book out that not only relates the stories of two survivors of World War 2 – who happen to be her parents – but it also relates how the author’s mother, and then the author herself, dealt with cancer.  

Roslyn Franken is the author of Meant to Be. It is a true story of might, miracles and triumph of the human spirit. Roslyn travels to tell her parents’ story to audiences across North America, speaking to students, seniors and organizations. She is also the author of The A List: 9 Guiding Principles for Healthy Eating and Positive Living, as well as the co-author of Death Can Wait: Stories from Cancer Survivors.
