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?
This is a very moving story that have my heart aching and tears gathering very early on.
The story touches on a subject that many of us struggle with: forgiveness.
Hannah shows us how many of us can be. As long as everything is going great we love God and trust him, but as soon as something goes wrong we question His goodness and can even stop talking to Him. Have you been there? I have.
If you are looking for a book that cuts to the core and will make you feel deeply this is a great book for that.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
