Goodnight, Brian by Steven Manchester

About the Book:
Fate was working against little Brian Mauretti. The food that was meant to nourish him was poisoning him instead, and the doctors said the damage was devastating and absolute. Fate had written off Brian. But fate didn’t count on a woman as determined as Brian’s grandmother, Angela DiMartino who everyone knew as Mama. Loving her grandson with everything she had, Mama endeavored to battle fate. Fate had no idea what it was in for.
My Thoughts on This Book:
Tugging at the heartstrings. This book shows us the strength of a family that endures heartache, and pain and overcomes it with the power of love and family. Brian, a healthy baby boy at birth finds himself with a large obstacle in his path after he suffers brain damage from consuming bad infant formula. While the author could of easily turned this book into a legal drama showing us that side of the story, he didn't. He showed us the better side, the struggles, the unconditional love, and the hope each of Brian's family members showed through all the obstacles that he endured. Powerful testimony that even when life brings you things that may bring us down, God can show us that we can fight for it all and come out better on the other side. Gripping and well worth the read! Highly recommend this book!
