Believe. A message that still taunts her years after the passing of her daughter. In the days of her daughter’s illness, she considered herself a seeker, open to the possibilities of prayer and faith. Now cynical and guarded, she is forced to reexamine her beliefs and relive her past when an old love resurfaces, with a sick child of his own. Believe is a story that examines fractures to our foundations in the face of tragedy. It is a story that asks if prayers are always answered, but often in ways we do not see.
NOTE: Despite the spiritual tone of this work, please be aware it contains strong language.

Hello there! A little about me. A long-time Las Vegas native, I spend my days teaching computer technology to hormonal middle schoolers. I live with my husband of 20+ years and have a teenage daughter, grown son, and child of the furry persuasion.
I’m a huge fan of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, as well as movies with stupid humor. Zoolander, Austin Powers, and Monty Python are some of my faves. And if you asked me where the best place in the world is, it would have to be Disneyland. I mean, it is the happiest place on Earth.
I love to write about relationships, family as well as romantic, and my aim is to explore life’s challenges with honesty and humor.



Believe is the story of one woman’s loss and the emotions and feelings she goes through on her journey of healing. You will go through all of those emotions with her and if you have ever lost anyone you were close to, you will know exactly where she is coming from. It’s hard not to question what you believe after you lose someone and I thought the author did an excellent job of portraying this.

Shelly Hickman wrote and narrated this book and I really enjoyed both the writing and the narration. Her voice is clear and crisp and the emotion in the writing comes through in the narration.

From the title, it might be assumed that this is a spiritual book but it is not. There is strong language involved. This book is about hope and healing and I really enjoyed it.

Rating: 4.5 stars
