The Burden She Carried

By Kelly Ferguson - ISBN: 9781922751560

RRP: $34.95

This is a story of tragedy, trauma and pain of the worst kind.  A story of unbelievable resilience and the strength of a woman who never, ever gave up on her family...  

It is the story of a mother who raised her disabled child, suffered an injury at work and then dealt with the loss of her beloved mother. An incredible and unimaginable breakdown of her husband occurred that resulted in a tragedy that would see him rendered disabled for over two years and Kelly found herself having to support, provide and care for her family of six during these years of ongoing challenges and seemingly endless recoveries. 

At only 42, she was the one capable of carrying the burden for all. Kelly is a normal everyday loving wife, mother and member of the global community.

Yet she has found inspiration from her life journey and shares it beautifully in this moving and inspiring book. Her story gives a firsthand look into courage, strength and pure determination in the rawest of human spirit. 

It only takes one person to save another, if they are willing to carry this burden…

Kelly is such a person and this is the burden she carried.

“A book of emotive telling that breaks your heart at the same time it makes you cry out for joy… Brilliant and a must read...!” Catherine, Indie Book reviewer
