At 3:00 a.m. on March 1, 2008, Terry Caffey awoke to find his daughters boyfriend standing in his bedroom with a gun. An instant later the teen opened fire, killing Terrys wife, his two sons, and wounding him 12 times, before setting the house ablaze. Terry fell into deep depression and planned to kill himself, but God intervened. Upon visiting his burned-out property, Terry noticed a scorched scrap of paper from one of his wifes books leaning against a tree trunk. The page read: [God,] I couldnt understand why You would take my family and leave me behind to struggle along without them. And I guess I still dont totally understand that part of it. But I do believe that Youre sovereign; Youre in control. That page was like a direct message from God, and it turned Terrys life around. Now, one year later, Terry is remarried, the adoptive father of two young sons, and working to rebuild his relationship with his 17-year-old daughter, who is currently serving two life sentences in a Texas state penitentiary for her involvement in the crimes.
Terror by Night tells the compelling story of how Terry Caffey found peace after his wife and sons were brutally murdered and his teenage daughter implicated in the crime. Sharing never-before-told details about the night of the crime and subsequent murder trial, it explains how Terry was able to forgive the men who murdered his family, and how he even interceded with the prosecutors on their behalf. A powerful example of how the power of forgiveness can bring healing after tragedy and great loss, it shows how God can bring good out of even the darkest tragedies.
