Author(s): Gordon Livingston
The loss of a child is every parent s most unspeakable fear. Gordon Livingston survived that tragedy not once but twice in a 13-month period, losing one son to suicide and another to leukaemia. Only Spring, based on the journal he began keeping when the family received six-year-old Lucas diagnosis, traces the excruciating ordeal of witnessing his child s courageous battle and the agonising cycle of faith lost and hope gained.As a memorial, Only Spring will introduce you to a remarkable child whose legacy of hope and love can enrich each of us. As a portrait of survival, it will infuse us with the strength and faith to confront the most profound challenges in our lives.Gordon Livingston brings to this book his beautiful writing style, his down-to-earth insights and his ability to make you see the world differently, which has made his other two books so successful and so important.
