Meet the Author

Author, Shelly L. Rainey experienced a devastating loss, one that changed her life forever. After the unexpected early terminations of two pregnancies and a diagnosis of Crohns disease, the young Maryland wife and mother endured the passing of her new born daughter just two days shy of becoming a month old. “After losing my daughter I was overwhelmed with grief and I didn’t know how I was going to make it through each day. My daughter was diagnosed with Necrotizing Enter colitis only two days short of losing her life”, said Rainey. After months of horrifying sleepless nights, Rainey decided to share her experience and write a book that would capture the hearts of many. In the author’s first inspirational memoir, The Fragile Heart, she shares her heartbreak experiences of losing three children and a career due to illness in hopes of inspiring others facing difficult, life altering situations."My prayer is that this book will be able to touch at least one person's heart and in their brokenness they will be able to experience a true healing that will make them whole again", said Rainey. Since her book release in February 2009, Rainey has traveled to many parts of Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, and Pennsylvania sharing her story and encouraging the hearts of those faced with difficult circumstances. Her powerful message of healing and hope has inspired various book signings, speaking engagements and she has received accolades amongst her peers, as well as those in various leadership positions. Her book has traveled across the globe and continues to touch the hearts and lives of many:Bishop Warner P. Bradby (Baltimore, MD)- After reading this book, I was inspired to serve the Lord even more vigorously. Having known Shelly for years, I have seen the growth in her life and was very impressed with the way that she put her experiences into words. The Fragile Heart is a must read not only for Christians but for everyone who needs encouragement and understanding during trying times.Jaqueline Anthony (Baltimore, MD)- "This book is a true page-turner. Everything is filtered in, to you, emotionally. There seemed to be no end with situation after situation, as I continued my read of "The Fragile Heart". Amazing! I was sad, happy, upset and anxious. Not to mention, just about broken at times. And through it all, I was able to understand the commitment in the author's transformation. Shelly, I commend you for your willingness to open up your heart and invite so many in. You are truly Blessed!"Debra D. DeClout (Women of Destiny LLC; Atlanta Ga)- Shelly has swung open the door and allowed us entry into her once fragileheart. She has granted us the blessing of experiencing her victory in her most trying times. I commend her for writing such a revealing book. Her honestassessment of her life, the descriptive views of her pain and the powerful revelation of a developed relationship with the Lord are hallmarks of this bookthat will set it, the author and her unique experience in the hearts of the reader.Eileen Morales (Santa Monica, CA)- “Just read your book, it was really inspirational. I just lost my husband in Sept. andhe was only 47 and I just got to believe that God is in control of my life and I have to trust and continue to follow Him no matter what..”You can order Shelly Rainey's book right here on Smashwords!!

    One Woman's Journey with Heartbreaks and Healing

    This short piece is more a personal journal of one woman's life as told mostly by the various heartbreaks she experiences. She relates how she emotionally and spiritually responded tp these.
    Poorly written. The writing itself reads very hum drum and repetitive. If someome was in midst of a trial the would likely overlook that and glean from the mice lessons she teaches.

    This book was what I needed in the time of healing. I lost someone very close to me and felt as if I was drowning in sorrow. This book not only gave me a sense of hope but I felt as if I could totally identify with the author. She opened her heart and because of that I feel as though I can make it through this really hard time in my life. This is a great read.
