This is his mother’s story. Not only did she lose her precious son through suicide, but she also lost her understanding of him as an honorable man. It was a trauma that no one should ever have to face.   But the biggest headlines came when her Amish neighbors did the unimaginable, reaching out to the family of the shooter with comfort and forgiveness. Today, Terri lives in harmony with the Amish and has built lasting relationships beyond what anyone could have thought possible.

Editorial Reviews

"Caution advised: You won't be able to put this book down once you start reading. Donald B. Kraybill, author of Amish Grace
"This riveting account, written by a brave and brokenhearted mother, may not be what you're expecting. In fact, it may surprise you. But it will surely present you with an enduring hope that can only come from the loving hand of our heavenly Father. You will be drawn, as I was, to embrace fully the miracle and blessing of forgiveness. from the foreword by Beverly Lewis, bestselling author
