Amazon Review “Tragedy, Yet, Triumphant”

5.0 out of 5 stars Two tall tales, a religious perspective, a good read!, March 29, 2017
This review is from: Tragedy, Yet, Triumphant: (black & white) (Paperback)
“Tragedy, Yet, Triumphant” by twin sisters Loretha Wallace and Loretta Wallace Ellis includes two powerful short stories and a collection of illustrated poems and prose. The tale “Rich Man Lived Like a Poor Man” reminds readers that the faithful will be blessed with a long life. The second tale ” Emily and Jane were not their mother’s favorites” gives readers the story of two sisters who were slighted beyond reproach. Both girls desired love. Love was robbed from one sister, and the other choose death over life.
