This book was written so the experience could be shared and not forgotten. I met Samuel by chance on an online dating site, and with a leap of faith, I got up the courage to write to him in 2011. We were total strangers on this dating site, but when he wrote back a few days later, we began an online conversation that would last over three years. Samuel led me down a new path spiritually that would eventually change the course of my life. The experience was amazing!
This book will take you on an inspirational spiritual journey of a single mother still lost after a painful divorce in 2002 and how she and her two children learned to cope and eventually begin again. It's said that people come into and out of our lives for a reason. I have taken those words rather lightly over the years, not fully understanding their profound meaning. But it's true; people come into our lives, it seems, right when we need them the most. How does this happen, and who sends them? Why do they send them? Samuel guided me to a better existence, never asking for anything in return. Who does that for a perfect stranger? Miracles do happen!

It Happened On Munger Street is Victoria's true story of how she was able to overcome deaths, a divorce and finding her true self! When Victoria's in-laws died within 3 weeks of each and having her marriage fail just two years after that, Victoria is at rock bottom and having to start over with her two kids. After ten years, an internet online dating site leads her to a man named Samuel who ends up changing her life in a way that she is able to live life that she was always meant to live it. I'm kinda torn about this book, I want to like it due to the change that Victoria was able to make to her life but I also felt it was a little to preachy and religious tones for my liking. You also can't help to cheer Victoria on as she was making these choices that would eventually change her life for the better. For me, I believe that everything happens for a reason and having read something like this just makes me believe that even more! Thank You to Victoria Hartland for telling your story of growth and letting everyone know, that all it takes is one person to change everything! I received this book from the Author in exchange for a honest review.
