ABOUT THE BOOK
Thirty-three years old, happily married to a lovely wife, a great job in dentistry, a strong Christian faith … life seemed just about perfect for Andy Davies.
But then, shockingly, Andy suffered a massive stroke, leaving him with ‘locked-in syndrome’. Paralysed and only able to communicate by a series of blinks, Andy’s life, and that of his family, was changed forever. And what of his faith?
A touching a rewarding read, this is the story of a brave man and a brave family, holding onto the promises of God and finding victory and purpose in the midst of tragedy – but a tragedy that has not robbed Andy of deep and real love, and of a life worth living, as he begins to study at theological college.
Andrew Davies is currently studying for a theology degree an author and active member of his local church. He lives with his wife Emma, in Bournville, Birmingham. England.
‘People throw the term ‘inspirational’ around a lot these days, but Andy’s story defies all expectations. He has not only strived to live a full life, but gone above and beyond, seeking out opportunities to fundraise for the freedom of human trafficking victims. If you get the chance, you should definitely give this a read.’
