How Ordeals Became
Opportunities

This book is not about people who were born poor and then became rich. This book consists of true stories about extraordinary human beings, who despite, rather because of, the terrible ordeals that life has thrown at them, achieved personal successes and became healers, educators, advocates for the abused, inspirational speakers, motivational symbols of survival, and achievers of sacred dreams. These tales will encourage people who are dealing with challenges that the ruthless twists of fate present to them.

TESTIMONIALS

I know Marina Ray for many years, as well as some characters from the book. This incredible book reveals shocking examples of human baseness and author’s unbelievable strength battling for righteousness and justice. In addition to a description of personal conflicts, author’s memoir brings up issues, of which many people don’t dare to speak or write. I couldn’t stop reading this book.

Ordeals and opportunities is an aggressive exploration of both the institutional and personal ordeals that these extraordinary human beings had to contend with. I came away with the feeling that I was not forced to measure up to the people in these stories, but rather, adopt aspects of a mindset similar to theirs in the pursuit of justice and meaning in my own life. If you are someone who has been dealt a cruel blow by the institutions that drive our society, or if you have gone through unfortunate circumstances.
Arnold Layne
Writer
I highly recommend reading this book to everybody. It’s hard to imagine that all described events really happened to the author. I met Marina Ray long time ago and know her as a cheerful and sociable person. Her courage withstanding life’s tragic twists is amazing and can be an example for others.
