More than a memoir, A Single Desperate Prayer is a riveting account of one resilient girl's life in a Crimean ghetto, replete with equal amounts of tragedy and triumph.
Told through the eyes of a child, the reader witnesses Ludmila's growth and maturation as she starts from practically nothing, learns how to beg in the streets, loses all of what little she had, is left to the wolves, and then saved by grace - all before her fifteenth birthday.
How hopeless can a child get?
Ludmila got there
How did she escape her condition?
A single desperate prayer.
This remarkable story appeals to a wide audience, from children to adults, from adoptive parents to those considering it. People who have been orphaned, or lost, or are looking for a way out. Those who need inspiration, and are searching for a practical way to find happiness and purpose in life.
