Could you forgive someone who killed your child? Jeannie must, to preserve her family. Sisters Emma and Jeannie are best friends, and so are their teenage daughters Sadie and Tessa. But when a tragic accident results in Tess’s death—and Sadie is responsible—both families are devastated. Each sister must find a way from heartbreak and anguish to solace and forgiveness—but is there anything to be salvaged from a world that lies in ruins?
My Comments: This book kept me riveted throughout. I can’t imagine anything so horrible happening to a family as what this family faced. I don’t know how anyone could completely get over what happened but I guess if anyone could it would be someone of the Amish or Mennonite faith. They inspire me and make me want to be a better person/Christian. I do believe Anna Schmidt is one of my new favorite authors. Her books differ in style and content than most others in the Christian genre that I read. Redemption is a strong element and the characters dwell on things other than romance. These characters face real-life problems and struggles. I recommend this series, The Women of Pinecraft).
