These are the kind of stories that could happen to each and every one of us (and often do)...and they are all true. They are stories about intervention of a human nature as well as up Above. They are stories about who we are and what we can and should demand of ourselves... about introspection... about what motivates us and how we can learn from our mistakes so we can grow in the future. There are stories about redemption: moments when all seemed lost and how the characters were redeemed from such hopeless cases. There are stories about direction: the strength to recognize that Hashem knows what we want and what is truly good for us to have.
You will be inspired and touched by these stories, all the more so because you will be able to imagine yourself experiencing the very same ordeals as these real-life characters.
