When Rex, 83-year-old musician, husband, and father of three, suffered a massive stroke, he was told that he would never recover. However, with the powerful grace and love of his spiritually-awakened wife Hilda, Rex underwent an inspiring journey of healing that helped restore his ability to speak and walk. A Stroke of Love is the true story of Rex and Hilda's path toward recovery, which reveals how his persistent joy in the face of adversity and her special care and steadfast faith in God helped them to overcome fear, and trust in the healing power of love. A perfect story for anyone facing a life-altering diagnosis, A Stroke of Love is an intimate and encouraging example of how faith and love can be the most powerful medicines.
The author, Hilda Norton, was Rex's wife of 45 years (and sweetheart for 51 years.) She is a violinist, a woman of great faith, a lover of nature, gardening, poetry and books, the mother of three sons, and a proud grandmother. A passionate musician, she continues to give private music lessons out of her home studio in Hagerstown, MD. In honor of her beloved, all proceeds of the book will be donated to the Doey's House - Hospice of Washington County.
