I first read The Krystal Promise when I was about 14. I remember thinking that it was a sad and horrible story. I made the mistake of reading it again when I was pregnant with my second daughter. Big mistake. I highly recommend against reading this after you've become a parent. You will cry. And then, you will go find your children and hold them and tell them that you love them. If you choose to read The Krystal Promise, make sure you have a box of Kleenex's on hand.
I first read this book when I was about 12. I've read it many, many times since. I have my original copy still. It makes me cry everytime...REALLY cry! It is very sad, but at the same time, I find it to be very uplifting in the sense that the mother has such an understanding of eternal families and that her daughter lives on. Great book!
