This book 'When no one else believed' by Ron Tripodo, is the author's first hand account of the healing of his wife, Patsy. It is an inspirational book that helps to increase and solidify one's faith in God. Despite having ADHD, he was able to pen down a coherent and well organized narrative.
Congratulations on #BOTD.

This is an inspirational and emotional book. There's a saying that "everyone is tested according to his/her faith". I believe so.

The informal writing style and enthusiasm of the author initially made for an easy start to reading this book. I enjoyed learning about his ADHD and discovery of medication, and am intrigued by the diagnosis his wife receives plus the radical steps he undertakes when acting on his faith.
This book would not be for everyone, however, as the author’s perspective is very specific, including assumptions and ways of operating that are part of his version of belief in God.

Those who are looking for some inspiration and/or are interested to discover how others view the world, may find it a fascinating read. Thanks for your review.

I read the sample of this book, and found the sample pages to be very well written. After reading your review, I will be adding this book to my To-Read list. It's always nice to read a story about overcoming trials with God's help. Great review!

Although this doesn't sound like a book for me, it would have taken a lot of courage to write it and I'm sure many will find inspiration in it. Great review

This book sounds very inspiring. I dont often read inspirational books but they are nice to give you some motivation and insight on how others have gone through their struggles.

I cannot imagine how difficult it must be to play the part of "companion" when someone is going through a crisis. It's heartening to hear that they overcame and persevered. Thanks for this review!
