About the Book
For Tracy Widowson, the morning she wakes up to venture out on a Nile cruise is a turning point in her life in more ways than one. The trip originally planned for her husband, Tom, and herself, is now to be undertaken alone since Tom’s death from a brain tumour, four years earlier.
In Second Chances on the Nile, Hazel Williams explores getting through life’s problems with faith. Strengthened by her belief that a design greater than our own shapes our lives, Tracy sets out for the Nile with an open mind and, more importantly, an open heart, that is where Jake, a stranger comes in. From this starting point, Tracy’s family grows and despite the many wrong turns individuals in the family take, there is always the guiding hand of God to help them find the right path.
Second Chances, published by Austin Macauley, is available to purchase from Amazon and all good bookshops.
