When 26-year-old Melissa agreed to a blind date with good-looking photographer Bruce, she had already gone through more than most of us do in a lifetime—cheating death even before her first birthday, living with serious chronic illness, and then going through a family tragedy that would change everything. A small-town girl, adopted at birth, she had moved to LA and was searching for where she fit in the world and her purpose in life. On that blind date, Bruce and Melissa fell deeply, instantly in love. But their relationship would face many tests: Melissa fought one grave medical problem after another, while the demons of Bruce’s past threatened their future together. Yet just when their love triumphed over the challenges, by a turn of fate, now Bruce faced a life-threatening health crisis. And Melissa realized she finally knew her life’s purpose: to be there by his side, every step of the way. Turn of Fate takes the reader on a journey from a simpler time in America, to Hollywood and the LA music scene of the nineties, to the intimate moments between two people in love facing the world together. It’s a story of adversity and survival—but far more than that, it’s a story about life.
