One piece of literary work that has changed my life is a book called Every Storm, by Lori Wick. It has changed the way that I look at my family and how much I depend on them for support. This book is set right after World War II and two sisters, Josie and Lorri, are set to head back to the United States (US) from Australia to visit family. On the way back to the US, there is a huge thunderstorm that results in Josie and Lorri’s plane crashing in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, Josie and the pilot did not make it, forcing Lorri to survive on a random island alone to fend for herself. Lorri is finally able to reach her home and she is faced with all sorts of challenges physically, mentally, and emotionally.

No matter how far away in the past seems to have happened, there is always a way to get through the pain and the grief. Being close with one’s family helps keep focused on other events rather than the tragedy that has happened. It can also help one become a stronger person, both physically and mentally, throughout the whole ordeal. In the book Every Storm, there are many people effected by a tragic event. All of these people are also affected in different ways, whether it be emotionally, physically, or even mentally but were able to depend on their family to get them through it.
