Product Description

Penned more than a decade after her father's death, Broken for Good is the stunningly written narrative of one daughter's journey through deep grief into the beginnings of a stronger, brighter faith. Rebecca Rene Jones wades through her aching sorrow, beautifully rendering the underbelly of grief without shying away from its raw brokenness. In these pages, she tells her uplifting story of a gradual, cautious return to hope and of waking up to the world, to new hungers and to a far braver faith.

Publisher's Description

A daughter's narrative about life with and without her father, whose death plunges her into deep grief but gradually becomes her most compelling reason to hope.

Like so many Christian women, Rebecca, her mother, and her two sisters love a man who does not walk beside them in faith. As his cancer returns after a year of remission, they face his last days. As the women in his life struggle to savor their final times together and let go, he finally reaches out to God, and tells them so. Her father's death opens the landscape of heaven and hope to her. She beautifully renders those visions as well as the underbelly of sorrow as she is finally forced to wake up to the world, to new hungers, and to a far more dangerous faith. Here is a spiritual coming of age manifesto that will take its place alongside Voskamp and Lamott as uplifting writing on loss, grief, and growing up, quick.
