This is an amazing book written by an amazing woman. It is full of deep, raw emotions and deep biblical truths. I am so thankful for her honesty about what life was like for her after the tragedy. My absolute favorite part was the epilogue written by Nate. What a blessing!

This is a great true story about a young woman who has persevered through a lot of pain and sorrow in her life. In this book Sarah talks about her relationship with God through the good times and the bad times in her life. It is very inspirational for anyone who has ever questioned their faith.
