About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

When one son becomes the victim of a senseless shooting, the family learns just how easy it is to be touched by evil, but they choose forgiveness over vindication. And when tragedy strikes, shattering forever the way they look at the world, they refuse to be overwhelmed; instead face their biggest challenge and sorrow with dignity and a solidarity readers will be touched and inspired by.

This is a story for all ages, and an authentic portrait of the human condition. In reading this lovely account of one family, fictional but realistic, I learned that, in the heart of home, we are indeed closest to heaven."

- Marla Cordle, author of Silencing Sarah and Breach of Trust
