Did you know we have a Spanish edition of The Castaways? It will be available on Kindle in the next few months. I’ve had the manuscript for a while and a couple of years ago a friend of mine, I’ll call her Maria, asked me if I had a Spanish edition because her teenage daughter had a friend (who I’ll call Isabella) who was planning an abortion. Maria hoped the book would help change Isabella’s mind. So I printed the manuscript and gave it to her to give to Isabella.
Today I spoke to Maria and asked her what had happened with Isabella. I was so happy when she told me that, after reading the book, instead of getting an abortion, Isabella and her boyfriend are now happily married and the parents of a beautiful one year old girl.
