I couldn’t pass up this book when I saw the title and synopsis. Oh, my! What a gripping story. I am blown away by the way God worked in Laurie’s life as she learned to forgive her father’s murderer. She was not a Christian at the time of her father’s death, and she did her best to put her life back together after he died.
After attending church with a friend, she realizes what is missing from her life. From there, God proceeds to work miracles in her life. But, she also has a front row seat as He works miracles in the life of her father’s killer and the men he is surrounded by in prison. This is the ultimate story of God using a devastating situation for His glory!
