about

"This is the story of a journey that few of us have to take; it is only for the bravest.
Virág and James are two young people who are talented, bright and attractive. Soon after their beautiful marriage and reception in a castle in Hungary, they came to live in one of the loveliest English cities … After a while Virág became pregnant; no one could have been more delighted and thrilled than both of them. Luki – or Luke – was born. Luke seemed a very healthy baby. They made a lovely family.
And then their lives changed suddenly and drastically. Luke became unwell at around six months old. He was admitted to the local hospital and then was transferred to Bristol for radical emergency brain surgery for an aggressive brain tumour …
But this is a story of triumph in the midst of pain, frustration, bewilderment and uncertainty; of peace and confidence where normally there would be none."

- Rev. Patrick Whitworth

"I don't understand why really tough things happen to good people. Instead of turning their back on God, Virág and James turn towards Him with their questions, doubts, disappointments and frustrations and in doing so experience His peace in a remarkable way. Virág writes with passion and honesty and her beautiful heart as a mother shines throughout. Something special happens when we share our common humanity and fragility in the way Virág has done in this book."

Founder and CEO of XLP

AUTHOR BIO:

Virág Wheeler-Mezei grew up in Tiszadob, a village in the north-east of Hungary. In 2008 she moved to the UK, where she worked in childcare and married an Englishman, James. In was in Britain that she also began to grow in her relationship with God, making Jesus Lord of her life.

Soon after their fairytale-like wedding in a Hungarian castle, James and Virág moved to Bath and looked to start a family. Virág became pregnant and both were thrilled with the birth of their son Luke. He seemed a healthy baby at first, but their family life was impacted when Luke became unwell at around six months old. He was soon transferred to Bristol for radical emergency brain surgery for an aggressive brain tumour.

This was just the beginning of a long journey through multiple surgeries, rounds of chemotherapy and pioneering radiotherapy. Virág found herself fighting for the well-being of her son, whilst finding her relationships with her husband and with God put under strain. Her story is one of triumph in the midst of pain.
