On October 2, 2006 a son of Terri Roberts entered an Amish school and shot ten girls. Five children died and others were injured. The gunman took his own life. Countless lives were changed that day. In Terri Robert’s book, Forgiven, she recounts her reaction to her son’s actions. She struggled to find an explanation for what led him to this. Could he have been stopped? Unexpectedly, members of the Amish community reached out to Terri and her family. They came offering forgiveness, comfort and grace. She writes eloquently of the relationships that developed and the path her life took as a result.
This is a moving and memorable book and I highly recommend reading it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
