Promise of a Future

Promise of a Future by Stephanie McCall is a lovely book about Kate and Elinor.  Kate has cerebral palsy, but she is very high functioning.  Kate is currently going to a local college where she faces bullying and discrimination from students and administration.  Elinor is Kate’s aunt and has her own demons.  Elinor is trying to overcome tragic childhood experiences as well as deal with her schizophrenic mother.  Both Elinor and Kate are Christian’s but they both feel that they are too bad to be loved by God.  In this book you get to see what people with disabilities face on a daily basis.  In this day and age it is a shame how people with disabilities are treated.  There are some wonderful lessons in this book (about faith, loving yourself, standing up for what is right).  I enjoyed reading Promise of a Future and look forward to reading more books by Stephanie McCall.  To find out what happens with Kate and Elinor, please pick up a copy of Promise of a Future (available on  I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.

Thank you for visiting and Happy Reading!
