In Case of Fire - Canadian Edition
Beautifully written and told with breathtaking honesty, Spencer Beach's journey will astound and inspire you. At age 29, with his life finally falling into place and a new baby on the way, Spencer experienced a nightmare beyond imagination. But it is what he did with that nightmare that makes his story so compelling. Read it and learn what courage truly means.
From the book:
"In the months and years after the fire that disabled me, disfigured me, and almost killed me, I went through serious depression, excruciating therapy, and intense psychological counselling. I lived in pain and saw how I'd hurt everyone I cared about. I assessed and reassessed my attitudes and my life. Why did this happen to me? What did it mean? And, finally, how could I stop it from happening to anyone else? One psychologist told me I would never get over the trauma of the fire and its aftermath, but that I would find harmony with it.
"This is the story of how I did that."
I wrote In Case of Fire with Calgary writer Naomi K. Lewis.
