Little Luke’s Big
Heart by David Chisholm
is the true story of life with Luke who was diagnosed with health problems in
the womb. This is one amazing family who have coped with everything that life

so much but still their faith and humour remain.
David Chisholm has compiled lists of what not
to say and what to say to those facing medical problems. He also has a list of
how to survive long spells in hospital.

follows all of the characters.
The reader sees the terrible conditions faced
by all Poles but especially the Polish Jews who are herded into the Warsaw
ghetto. As “the noose tightens day by day”, the question was asked “where was
the world?” It seemed that Poland had been abandoned and no one cared.
