With Love from God is Sohini Rajpal's moving account of the next two years of her daughter's second battle with cancer. For those who are encountering a similar experience or who are fascinated by an individual's determination to not only survive, but to enjoy life in spite of the obstacles that are placed in their way, this book will be an uplifting read. Sohini Rajpal takes the reader through their lives in different parts of the world encompassing Japan in the far east, Australia down under, their home country India and California in the west. The similarities and differences between the nations and cultures as well as each stage of therapy, each set back and each victory including in her praise all those who provided support through the journey towards recovery, including medical professionals, family and friends and even those on social media who offered prayers never having met Lavanya.With Love from God shows the world in its best light.
