ABOUT THE BOOK:
Who in this modern day and age believes in miracles? Anne Cooper didn’t, until the miracles started happening to her. An atheist, Cooper was an unlikely candidate for miracles. Raised Catholic, Anne abandoned the family faith in her teens and raised her three boys to simply be good people, despite her husband’s hidden alcoholism. It all worked until the veneer of her near-perfect life was shattered by tragic and violent death.
Anne thought she would never get past the grief. And then the miracles started to happen. Real miracles and events that seemed to transcend the limitations of time and space and flesh. They led her to explore territory previously foreign to her, and the astounding lessons she learned compelled her on a journey to a second, better life.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Anne C. Cooper, the oldest of eight children, moved to Georgia as a young wife and freelance copywriter to raise three boys and help her industrial designer husband start a business with global clients. Upon the failure of that business, due to the 1992 recession and her husband’s alcoholism, Anne took a position as office manager for a local construction company and eventually earned her MBA. Two years later, she was appointed Director of MBA Admission for the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business.
Today, Anne lives and works in Athens, Georgia, a college town that hasn’t lost its sense of community, despite its growth. She loves her work at the University of Georgia and, with her first book, is looking up and out for what it will bring into her life—good people, love, travel, adventure, and opportunities to share.
