The Brotherhood of Silence gives voice to the recollections of a woman who suffers debilitating injuries in an accident and then faces working through how to live with a disability and how to pursue doggedly the resolution of a medical malpractice lawsuit that took nine years to settle. Margaret Holland, assisted by Delana Reese, co-author, turns her personal experience, captured in the pages of a surprisingly therapeutic journal, into a testimony to the resilience of the human spirit and to the grace of God who answers prayers for help in troubled times. Preserving the form of the author’s original journal with dated entries, The Brotherhood of Silence does not avoid the depths of pain and the shadows of despondency. In turn, though, it finds cause for celebrating over the triumph wrought by the author’s human spirit guided and empowered by the grace of God. As Margaret Holland notes, “I believe everything happens for a reason. And if we look hard enough, we can... More > always find the good that comes from it.”< Less

Feb 19, 2016Margaret's story is not only encouraging, it is uplifting as well. She is a wonderful example of a person who chooses not to be crushed by her circumstances, but to persevere in spite of them. With an unshakable spirit and the support of her siblings, daughter and lawyers, she fights a system that is nearly impenetrable. With many heartbreaking setbacks, Margaret not only stays the course, she chooses to help others in similar circumstances with practical demonstrations for living a better life in spite of severe disabilities. Margaret was a pioneer in bringing awareness to the public about the needs of those confined by disabilities. Awareness of the need to have access in public places and awareness of the need to be acknowledged; to open a conversation that was uncomfortable for many. Margaret Holland's faith in God kept her strong when she was at the brink of despair and it was by God's grace that she forgave those who had hurt and abused her. An inspiring story to the end!
Nov 25, 2015So many stories being published today seem to focus on the negative, with folks becoming bitter rather than better, exhibiting despair rather than hope. That is not the case with this memoir. While much pain, loss, disappointment, discouragement, and hardship are present, they do not triumph. Rather Margaret Holland's story is filled with gratitude and optimism as she "lets go and lets God" bear the burdens she carries. Read and be encouraged.
Nov 11, 2015Written in the words of her own journal, Margaret’s indomitable Spirit dances off of the page to touch your heart. Following a series of heartbreaking events, all outside of her control (including the being trapped in the washing machine of medical doctors who are intent on protecting each other), Margaret chooses to rise above the reality she has been dealt. She is fearless in her fight against the system, devout in the care of her family, undaunted by what could have been crushing limitations, unbroken by tragedy, surrounded by her faithful siblings, daughter and friends, and unwavering in her faith in a God who never left her side. Her story, as co-authored by the talented Delana Reese, is stranger and more powerful than fiction in its staggering truth of the resiliency of the human spirit. A must read for anyone eager to know that there are still heroes walking among us determined to find the light in the darkness.
