Separated Angels: Shannon and Megan, the Fanning Twins
SEPARATED ANGELS is the powerful, true story of much publicized twins Megan & Shannon Fanning; born joined at the abdomen & separated in a tedious surgical procedure. This book details the emotional struggles experienced by the family during & following the pregnancy, birth & separation. The necessary decisions made by the parents, & the changes in prognosis made by the medical professionals, add to the emotional drama of the story. The accounts of faith shown & support received along with the seemingly miraculous final outcome make SEPARATED ANGELS especially inspirational. The book is written in easy-to-read style, with 6 photo & 16 hand-drawn chapter illustrations. To that end, technical medical terms are kept to a minimum. The text is suitable for most readers (ages 9 & up), & should not be offensive to any special interest group. Although not a religious book, it does offer a strong appeal to certain religious groups, as well as all those interested in a good story with a happy ending. It is the only true story of conjoined twins written by one of the parents. Published by Storybook Press, Inc., P.O. Box 4438, Naperville, IL 60540-4438, (708) 983-7717. $11.95 Retail.
