Could there be a more chilling word?

Could it be any more horrible than to have a loved one killed, brutally and heartlessly, without obvious reason or motive?

When Liz Peterson's elderly mother is found viciously beaten to death in her home, Liz and her husband, Charles, along with their grown son, John, and teenage daughter, Sarah, are horrified beyond words. Their previously predictable, respectable lives seem to have vanished without a trace, as they struggle to make sense of a senseless act.

And then a second blow-more devastating, if possible, than the first-rocks them to their core. John is arrested for his grandmother's murder. As what's left of the Peterson family begins to crumble under the weight of loss and accusation, the Petersons' longstanding Christian faith is put to the test in a way they could never have imagined, and unconditional love is stretched to its limits. Will family ties and relationships withstand such a crushing blow, or will evil succeed in dividing and conquering this once close and inseparable family?

Watch the chilling trailer!!

My review:

I endorsed Kathi's book, so of course I loved it. This story covers the full gamut of emotions. I can't imagine dealing with the stuff that Liz had to go through and I pray that never happens. But it's such an encouraging message to mothers who know the same pain Liz and her family face in this story. Not to be read without tissues handy. If you want to know exactly what I said about the story you'll have to get the book and read my endorsement inside the cover. Mwahahaha!

I have gone through it through an in-law. It was devastating, knowing the children saw the murder. I'm hoping this will be a book of hope to those who have lost a loved one in such a tragic way.
