Blog tour stop for He Heard Hannah by Lynnette Kraft (with bonus review)

About the book:

In an amazing true story, two lives are inexorably interwoven. Courtney Becker, a 911 dispatcher, took a call on November 19, 2004. Initially it was just like any other call he might get on any other day. But this call would trigger a series of events that would save his life, but not the life on the other end of the phone line. He Heard Hanna is an incredibly emotional and inspirational story of spiritual perseverance and finding hope in times of despair. It is a true story that proves miracles do happen, and our most trying moments can be overcome with God's help.

About the author:

Lynnette Kraft adores her husband, cherishes her children and loves her life! She has grieved the death of three of her children and credits the victory of her healing to Jesus Christ. She is passionate about sharing restored joy and enduring hope with those who need it. God has proven to her that when life brings uninvited trials and heartaches, He always has a perfect plan and divine purpose. Lynnette blogs where she encourages readers to live exuberant lives and continue walking with God, no matter what the circumstances.

My review:

I was presently surprised by the depth of this book. It was fairly well-written, too. I typically dislike non-fiction, but I do love true stories, so I decided to give it a try. The title is also very fitting, because if Courtney hadn't heard Hannah when the father said Anna, the story may have turned out differently. I found myself engaged in the story and tearful on a number of occasions, but in a good way.

This book shows the way God works in just one vivid example of how our lives are not our own and how each and every one of us is precious to God. This story made me think of other people who just wanted the lost to know Jesus. It was the cry of their hearts. Many of them ended up being martyred or dying from some unexpected situation, but people found the Lord as a result, so you never know what God intends to do with our pain. We just have to trust Him through it.

My favorite scene in this book was right before Anna passed away and how she acted toward her family while on vacation. I also adored the part where she wanted to know Jesus, because her child-like faith and remorse made me cry. What a precious situation, and how privileged the author must have felt to share that experience with her child. I thought about Lynette's life and how she could have given up raising children after the first tragedy, or the second, but because she persevered, God gave her Anna. This story is a testimony of how trusting God even though the most painful situations in our lives can often cause the greatest blessings. Great book!
