To ROSWITHA. November .09
           I finally read your book.  I am not a reader so for me to read a book is an accomplishment.   I am very impressed by all the  possitive achievements in your life story.  You DID have a story  to tell.  There also were a lot of hardships in your life, and i am very sorry to hear about them, but they  made you a stronger and more determined person.
     That was something to receive those awards.  You have had a remarkable life.  keep it up, and I wish you all the best, in all your future endeavors.   Donna

I'm so glad that I met you and got to know you before reading your remarkable story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, even though it's heartbreaking at times. Through all the heartache you didn't give up, but bravely persevered, which speaks volumes of your inner strength, determination and faith. It's wonderful that you are now at a happy place in life and can look back and be proud of your accomplishments.

 First thank you so much for the book! I have not been able to put it down and have read it over the past 2 days! Your story is poignant and incredible- your perservance and determination is most inspiring. You certainly have come a long way on your life's journey- I can't wait to see what happens in your next trek...
 Love Ella



You were in the Chapters store in Winnipeg on May 17th 2009 at your book signing and I needed a book to read. Now that I have read your book I am honored and humbled by having met you. I will cherish this book forever. Once I started reading your story I couldn't put it down. I'm so glad you are having a happy ending.

Thank you so much for sharing your life with me and signing my book.

February 2009  Hello, I'm not sure if you remember me, but I volunteered as a silver wing in the spring of 2008. You told me about the book you had wrote about your life, one afternoon while we were having coffee in the observation deck. I was very interested in reading it, so last Saturday I finally had the chance to buy it. I didn't put it down until I was finished! It was absolutely amazing. It made me cry, laugh, and feel privileged to meet you. It has given me a new outlook on life, reading about all you have had to overcome and how successful you were. Congratulations on all your successes including your wonderful book! 

Roswitha,  A Life's Journey is a story that is heartwarming and at times heartbreaking, but ultimately triumphant. Roswitha Dessureault's indominable spirit and optimism shine through on every page, reminding readers to embrace their own life's journey.
