As Hannah Ryan waits for her family to return home from a camping trip, she realizes she has everything going for her—a husband other women admire, two charming teenage daughters, and a loving Christian home. As the sunny afternoon turns into twilight, her uneasiness grows along with the shadows. Then a car pulls into Hannah’s driveway, bringing two police officers...and devastating news that shatters her life forever.
In the days that follow, Hannah struggles with unspeakable feelings of sorrow and rage—feelings that fuse into one chilling purpose for living: revenge against Brian Wesley, the drunk driver who has caused all her pain.
In her fury, Hannah shuts the Lord out of her life. She’s determined not to forgive Wesley or the God who allowed this tragedy to happen. Can two caring people help Hannah rediscover her faith...before bitterness destroys her?
Karen Kingsbury does it again! Not 40 pages into the book and my husband asks me what is wrong as I have tears streaming down my face! This book delivers in the area of emotional uprising and tear jerking moments. Anyone of us, including myself, could go through the trials this mother and her family went through. There was real life heartbreak and hope woven throughout these pages.
As Hannah goes through the trials and nightmares that no mother and wife would ever want to wish upon her worst enemy I was able to relate in many ways. From loving memories of her daughters to the horrifying realization that her family has been torn apart and wondering if life will ever be "fair" or unkind again kept me turning the pages. Every moment I had I was stuck in this book!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
