"If I could I'd give this book more than five stars, and would happily do so. This is one of my favorite stories of all time. It is obvious that the author knows extensively about the human condition and helping hurting people find freedom emotionally and mentally. Her books show what is possible and that with hope, lives can be rebuilt, families restored, and healing with God can be found."
