Reading her story is amazing. You can see God at work in her life and the lives around her. Now I will warn you that you will need a box of tissues for this book. The one thing you will never know is what her husband did with the money he stole, she does keep this private. I want to know but I respect her decision not to tell us. I hope if I am faced with a similar situation that I would have the courage and faith like Becky did. This book is amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone, especially those who don't know God's grace and mercy. Really an amazing read!!

    What a story. Imagine being an active part of the upper social class of Austin, Texas. Imagine receiving a cryptic phone call from your husband of 22 years that seems to indicate he is ending his life. Imagine the panic and then the trauma. Imagine finding out he owed millions in loans from friends. Imagine the possibility of lawsuits, investigations, and criminal prosecution.

    Powell and Reay have provided an interesting and very readable account of the aftermath of Mark Powell's suicide. The Powells had been part of Austin's high society, throwing lavish parties and taking frequent tropical vacations. That life was shattered when the reality of the Powell's financial situation came to light.

    The amazing thing is that Becky Powell vowed to pay back all the creditors - in full. No declaring bankruptcy. No paying cents on the dollar. Through the many delays and legal wranglings, she remained firm.

    Powell makes sure we know of the many friends who helped her with amazing support through the ordeal. She shares the many evidences of God's grace she experienced. She is honest about her struggles and her victories and her confident faith in God.

    This is a well crafted story of devastation, support, growth, and developing a new life. Do be aware suicide is central to the tragedy.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
