God has a way of reaching into the darkest of places and shining a light that you never knew was there. In this fictionalized story, Beverly Martin learns to get through the trials and tribulations of life, from fearing a hobo and a sister's teasing to surviving the school years and discrimination and first love, marital infidelity and divorce, and then life-threatening illnesses. She draws strength from God and never fails to believe and wait on Him. Beverly is nourished by this divine guidance because there is a difference between bitter and better, and the difference is the letter "I." Each of us gets to make that choice.
