MARY ELLEN HAS WRITTEN A GOOD ACCOUNT OF KAY'S CAREER AND STRUGGLES.HAVING GROWN UP WITH HER, OF COURSE YOU COULD FILL MANY PAGES THE MORE OVER AND STILL NOT BE FINISHED. SO MANY MISS HER , ME TOO READ THIS AND CATCH THE VISION
What an excellent book about an excellent lady! TRIUMPH is the beautiful, inspiring, and true story of Kay Yow's life of faith and perseverance through adversity. I was hooked from the beginning of this book! The author tells Kay's story faithfully with wit and warmth. TRIUMPH made me laugh and cry and wish I had known Kay Yow- this book does bring the reader close to Kay's heart. Everyone should read it.
What a fantastic book about a truly inspiring woman! MaryEllen Williams carefully embodied the personality of Coach Yow in Triumph. Coach Yow had so many things going against her, but managed to keep a positive attitude and strong determination. The general public knows something about Kay Yow, but if you want to know the stories behind her grace "Triumph" is a must read.
