Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The central theme here--that hope endures despite crisis--is standard for the genre, but Melendez's story, from his Nicaraguan birth as an armless "thalidomide baby" to his musical performance before Pope John Paul II, is told with real power. The family's struggles, the move to America for medical reasons, his mother's single-minded faith, and his father's tragic disintegration under prejudice and oppression--all come vividly to life. Most moving of all is Tony's own stubborn joie de vivre. A shining tale, highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Tony Melendez was born without arms and yet grew up to play guitar for the Pope!! His story is exceptionally inspirational and well written. Tony also has released a few gospel cds and his music is great. A true man of God who gives hope to all those who are different in some way.
