This book was facinating to me. The fact that she went through all of this...alive. It got sort of redundant in parts when she talked about her pleading with him about her child. The person who reviewed the book and said "Book neglects to mention that she gave him crystal meth in addition to prayer." That is false. That is mentioned in the book. It talks about how her husband was killed, her drug addiction past and how she used it to relate with Brian Nichols.

I've never really like the whole biography thing, but this book is amazing and the details of the story are just mind boggling! I truly loved the testimony that she ends up walking away with is more priceless to the recovery of her walk and her life than anything else that she has faced so far.

Great book and would even be a good read the second time through.

Surprisingly, I enjoyed this book very much. It was honest, heartfelt, and at times it even made me a little angry. There were attention grabbing twists and turns and a few tearjerkers in it. I love that you can almost feel the raw emotion of the characters at times and the author is very descriptive so it almost feels like you are there with them.
Great book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes touching family struggles/drama with a hint of saving the world.
