SUNRISE resident, Brenda Crompton, 72, has written her third book, Smiling through tears, which is about the journey of her late daughter, Lindy-Lee Reyanard, who passed away five years ago on May 11 2013, after battling with pancreatic cancer.
“We want to share our grief and our sorrow, our hopes, questions, love, and joy as we walked through the way of suffering with our daughter.
“Through it all, we continue to point the reader to Jesus as the One to trust and follow for life and eternity,” she said, adding that it took two years to write the book.
“I have always wanted to write because everything was etched in my heart, so two years ago I decided to put it on paper to share the journey of my daughter with the rest of East London.
“Each is poignant and provides insight into the reality of suffering, and the power of God amidst suffering in providing comfort through loving relationships, strength in weakness and His Spirit to ease the pain, guide the way forward and provide in every way,” she said.
Crompton has written two other books, with one The Joy of Raising Daughters.
“I will be launching the book on in August 4 at the Murambi Tea Garden. People can join for R30 and the book will sell for R100 a copy. Anyone is interested in purchasing a book they can contact me on 083-799-0330,” she said.
