Their story includes severe child abuse and kidnapping, divorce, an unjust legal process, abandonment, manipulative parents, and much more. And yet, through God’s power, they’ve been restored. And you can be, too. Whatever your circumstances Forsaken will inspire you to hang on and invite you to deepen your faith in the Lord. Read it and share it with someone you love. You are not forsaken.”

Overcoming child abuse and an all-out legal attack, are just a couple of compelling parts to the Angelos’ story. Yet they took the difficult trials in life, and with God’s grace constantly deciding not to hold onto bitterness but instead be an example of mercy and love.”

“I am happy to recommend “Forsaken” by Jerry and Kate Angelo to the reader. For many years I have known this wonderful couple. Well, I thought I knew them. Then, I read “Forsaken” myself. After reading the first two chapters, I knew what was about to happen. So, I went into my garage, got my folding zero gravity chair and proceeded to my backyard under the tree where I do my best reading. I spent a most enjoyable afternoon going through the emotional ups and downs contained in the story of these amazing people and their family. I could not put the book down, and felt anticipation every time I came to the end of Jerry’s story, wanting to hear Kate’s version of what had happened. The unique dual author style keeps the reader’s attention and allows him or her to enjoy looking at the daunting mountains and despairing valleys they faced together, as One. The book shows us how a strong marriage with Christ at the center is truly a TEAM effort. Time after time Team Angelo steps up to the plate and takes their cuts at the game of life. The message of this book is uplifting, faith building, and leaves the reader with the feeling of joy to be a child of our wonderful loving Father in heaven. Both thumbs up, high up, for this inspiring book!”
