New memoir tells a compelling story of faith and determination in the face of life’s challenges

Eleanor Riley recounts her inspiring journey in ‘Rungs On My Ladder’

NEW YORK, Feb. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New release “Rungs On My Ladder” (published by Trafford Publishing) from Eleanor Riley tells the story of a rural Jamaican girl who defied all odds to triumphantly emerge as a successful author, songwriter, singer and first lady of a thriving ministry.


This collection of compelling autobiographical scenes in the author’s life, encased in her memoir, speak to the fact that in every human being, there is a void that can only be filled by God. Here, Riley recounts her experiences from childhood to present to show how “we can always go to a higher rung on our Ladder as we ride out the storms.” This life testimony brings together a significant tender message of hope, determination and faith from her pen to her readers.


“My story can be an inspiration to many, showing them that there is always another rung which accompanies new mercies from God every day,” Riley says. “I want readers to take away courage, strength, perseverance and be spiritually motivated. The concept is, if I can survive and thrive so can you.”
