What is it in the human spirit that enables ordinary people to overcome extraordinary odds? That’s the question that fascinated author George Bryant, and the answers he found are in an inspiring new book that is on the press now and arriving any day…

George decided that the best way to answer this burning question would be to research the lives of Kiwi battlers and interview them firsthand where possible. Trial to Triumph is the result. The book contains many stories from people in many walks of life Рpeople who have  overcome abuse, disabilities, sickness and trauma. For the dark territory that this book covers by necessity, it is a very inspirational read. The stories themselves are incredibly readable and interesting but will also help us find keys in our own lives for rising above difficulties.

Trial to Triumph has already garnered high praise – NZ Herald columnist Garth George calls it “An uplifting and tremendously encouraging read”.

TV journalist Rob Harley says in his foreword, “Read this book with humility but read it with hope.”

Trial to Triumph is published by DayStar books, with production work done by Castle. To be released on 9 July. For more info on the book visit the DayStar website. To discuss your publishing project contact Castle.

Amazon is the world’s largest book retailer, and a number of Castle titles are now available from the Amazon website. If you live in New Zealand or Australia we encourage you to support local outlets, but if you live overseas, Castle books are now just a click away.

Castle has only recently added our books to this service, but a few months ago I was alarmed (and in some ways a bit flattered) to find that on the second hand Amazon market the Castle classic Beyond Death and Dishonour is selling for US$329.95 (this is not a typo)! It’s clearly considered a ‘rare book’, but I’m sure customers will enjoy paying US$18 now that we have our listings up and running.

If you’ve purchased and loved a Castle title in the past (no matter where you purchased it) you can go onto the Amazon website and leave a customer review. It would be great if you would. Here’s a list of Castle titles currently available from Amazon:
