GIVEAWAY – Black Coat WIth A Silver Lining: Elizabeth Yalian

Black Coat With A Silver LiningFor a while I have been threatening to write a memoir. Well, I finally did, but the funny thing is that it’s not my memoir. Though, of course, it has an awful lot of my heart and soul in it.

Nick’s story is sure to steal your heart as you immerse in the fictional memoir of a young man’s struggle with loss, tragedy, and heartache. Shattered by his current circumstances, Nick, a former foster child, feels estranged from the world around him, and is weary of living on the frigid streets. One evening, his dream of an Italian feast turns hopelessly sour. Nick then steals a car and believes he is in danger after suspecting the car owner may be a criminal. During a haunting and intense moment of inner conflict, Nick wrestles with what he has done, and is forced to face the path his homeless life has taken him. He determines to follow his conscience; a decision that sweeps him past a few twists, and into a new faith and a new life. Black Coat with a Silver Lining strives to raise the awareness of the heartbreak, stark hardship, and impoverished state that leads to homelessness; and the tragic dilemma some foster children face when they age out of the foster care system. The story includes a multitude of topics including: the life of an orphaned child, compassion, love, humanity, struggles, betrayal, family, abandonment, heartache, poverty, hunger, destitution, shame, feelings of alienation, self-bashing, foster care, faith, mentoring, God, grace, forgiveness, everlasting peace, The Bible, the carnage caused by self-centeredness and divorce, homelessness, missions, getting arrested, and going to jail. A group discussion guide is included at the end of the book.
