What People are Saying About This

Antoinette Bosco

Lorraine V. Murray tells a vivid story about how she could face the cross of cancer and then share all she learned from her suffering with others once she put Christ "in the driver's seat." This is a moving, practical, very spiritual encounter between the writer and the reader.

Marci Alborghetti

In her wonderfully practical and profoundly spiritual book, Lorraine Murray often refers to the light of Christ piercing the darkness of cancer. Her book itself exemplifies that light. Why Me? Why Now? is a must for all who feel overwhelmed by darkness.
