Goodnight, Brian By Steven Manchester Review

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.

An emotional tale about the strength of family bonds, unconditional love, and the perseverance to do our best with the challenging gifts we receive, GOODNIGHT, BRIAN is an uplifting tribute to what happens when giving up is not an option.

5/5 Looooooved it
Whenever I think about Steven Manchester's writing, I know it's going to be like a fresh breath of air since I mostly read paranormal. With Goodnight, Brian I was absolutely stunned by the situation( I am not one to read blurbs, I just dove into the story). I loved how this book challenged the family and made them even stronger. It gives people hope and determination to do something since there is no such thing as CAN'T for the wonderful grandma whom you would grow to love. I would recommend this to everybody who sometimes wonder if faith is enough. Faith is everything. Where professionals have failed, faith has conquered.
