“One man’s search for identity, but finding truth.
Derek faced challenges that could have derailed his life, but triumphed in the end.
A must read for any demographic!”
Counsellor at Metropolitan Preparatory Academy Toronto
“Derek Morrison takes us on a very personal account of self-discovery, a journey toward a life of personal integrity born of a strong faith conviction. Luck, Coincidence or Providence shares an engaging story evoking memories of a not so distant past. I challenges the reader to weigh up whether life events are just happenstance or overseen by the benevolent influence of a guiding hand of love.”
Dr Les Ackie
Director for Family and Children’s Ministries, Seventh-day Adventist Headquarters, UK
“A first-generation black British man’s amazing spiritual journey of self-discovery and identity will have you intrigued as he takes us through an era and background of a racially divided and institutionally racist Britain, with a heart-warming tale of unconditional love and acceptance by his white foster family.”
