Product Description

Rebecca's father died three days into her freshman year of college. At the young age of eighteen, she found herself plunged into a loss that challenged the hope she had always carried in her Christian faith. Like so many women, Rebecca, her mother, and her two sisters had fiercely loved this man who for so long did not walk beside them in faith, who finally reached out to God in his last days. Penned more than a decade after her father's death, Broken for Good is a daughter's beautifully written narrative about life with and without her father, and her journey through deep grief into the beginnings of hope. In these pages, she tells her uplifting story 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.
