Finding Redemption: How a Lost Manuscript Became an Inspiration and an Award-Winning Book

After forty-five years, Ian Prattis rediscovered a manuscript he thought was long lost—he couldn’t even believe that he wrote it himself years ago.

Redemption was written back in 1975 when Ian was struggling with a failing marriage and an unstable career as a professor. Looking back, he couldn’t believe that he wrote those words in such a melancholic state. The rediscovery of his written work made him realize that many people also suffer from depression like he did and could also overcome that depression in time—like he also did.

In this month’s Author Spotlight edition, Ian talks about how a troubled time in life could turn into something positive and inspirational.
