Nominated for Best Anthology of 2016 in the Summer Indie Awards! Reaching #23 on Amazon’s Best-seller List for Literature & Fiction Mashups during preorders! This beautiful anthology is the brain child of Author Jennifer L. Roche CEO of Rainbows of Happiness LLC who wished to create an anthology that would serve as a living legacy not only for the three babies she had lost, but for all those mothers who had lost a child regardless of the age.

Jennifer asked Author Terrie Meerschaert owner of Indie Editing Services to join on as her partner in this venture after learning of Terrie’s loss of her own son.  Together they began to form the anthology group of authors known simply as the #DetoursCrew today.

Hope & healing are integral emotions required to allow an individual to overcome extreme circumstances allowing the human body to reset itself back on its path in life. We may have a life plan laid out ahead of time in our minds, but sometimes unexpected changes occur causing our paths to take a Detour In Our Destinations.

When we follow these new routes down life’s road, the experiences we encounter turn out to be rewarding, and meaningful.  Slowly our bodies adjust to change, allowing us to heal from our emotional turmoil and find a sense of hope.

Detours In Our Destinations Anthology is a collection of inspirational short stories & Detours 2original poetry created by 13 Indie Authors know as the #DetoursCrew who seek to inspire hope & healing in families affected by #childloss through stories touching on real-life issues.  Each short story in the #DetoursInOurDestinationsAnthony shows the #strength and #perseverance of individuals when confronted with emotionally poignant issues such as child loss, loss of a parent or spouse, infertility, dealing with rare health issues, or dealing with issues of inferiority & lack of self- confidence.  Proceeds from the sale of this anthology will be donated to the non-profit organization 3 Hopeful Hearts

Authors participating in this anthology are dedicated to helping make a positive impact in the lives of others. The short stories & poetry in Detours In Our Destinations are all written to be inspirational, emotionally poignant pieces of literature.  This anthology will have you feeling the emotional struggles each character overcomes, while simultaneously reaching for your tissues to dry your tears.  The purpose behind creating Detours In  Our Destinations is to display stories about people that positively impact the lives of others despite dealing with personal setbacks. Many of the authors choose to use stories taken from their own personal lives helping readers realize  dreams are possible to achieve despite the obstacles you encounter in life.  One should never give up hope. Continue to defy odds by staying true to themselves & believing they can accomplish their dreams!

The Detours Crew Members

I believe sharing heartfelt stories such as these is what helps set Detours In Our Destinations apart from most anthologies.  It allows the readers to see the vulnerability of authors and view them as “real” people.  In this sense Detours In Our Destinations is an anthology that creates optimism, inciting a spark of hope in the hearts ofthose who need something to help them in their journey of life!  This is a feel-good anthology rich with emotion. Are you ready to join us in an amazing journey? We’re waiting for you!
