Tired, stressed, life getting you down? What better than to have a long soak in a warm bath? The stories in this collection have been chosen to have the same soothing effect on your soul. These are remarkable stories of real people who discovered that, when it came down to it, they had the ability to overcome whatever life threw at them. Despite their struggles, they found the courage to face their fears and an inner strength they never knew they possessed. Some have faced the hurdles of serious illness or accidents. Others have coped with the loss of loved ones or the disappointment of professional and personal failure. In many cases they discovered a power bigger than themselves that ultimately gave them the will to cope. When they needed love, comfort or understanding, someone gave it. Their stories offer hope renewed, pain conquered, and the power of faith. Let these short pieces soothe your soul whenever you need it most. 'The people in A Long Hot Soak are no different to you and I. What they have achieved, we can too. So read on and be inspired.' Don Mclean
