Publisher's Description

After a son does the unthinkable, how can a mother go on?

On October 2, 2006, a gunman entered an Amish one-room schoolhouse, shooting ten girls, killing five, then finally taking his own life. This is his mother’s story. Not only did she lose her precious son through suicide, but she also lost her understanding of him as an honorable man. It was a trauma that no one should ever have to face.
 
But the biggest headlines came when her Amish neighbors did the unimaginable, reaching out to the family of the shooter with comfort and forgiveness. Today, Terri lives in harmony with the Amish and has built lasting relationships beyond what anyone could have thought possible. From the grace that the Amish showed Terri’s family from day one, to the visits and ongoing care Terri has given to the victims and their families, no one could have foreseen the love and friendship that have been forged from the fires of tragedy.

    Not only did the Amish community forgive their children's killer, they warmly and lovingly welcomed the killer's family into their community and homes.

    This is truly an unbelievable story of forgiveness and grace. To think the Amish families who had lost their children at Charlie Roberts' hands could go to the parents, wife, and children of this man and offer comfort and forgiveness is truly remarkable. If our own child had been killed by someone, could we forgive them? Could we help them and socialize with them? Would we block the media from seeing and filming his funeral? And as Terri Roberts and her husband, Chuck, felt guilt and pain as they wondered how on earth their precious oldest son could perpetrate such evil on these innocent children, how could they also visit the homes of the Amish and offer love and help to them? What an unlikely combination of grace and hope! But the Amish did just that and the Roberts family did just that! They all reached through their own pain and used it to help others and bless others and most importantly, offer forgiveness. Terri and Chuck Roberts and their sons and family members also had to work at forgiving their own son, brother, husband, father. Was that easy? Did it happen immediately? No and no. It took their dependence on God and that is what this story is about. I did feel at times that detailes could have been left out. I loved reading about the picnics and teas the Roberts hosted for the Amish families of the school though. That touched my heart in a big way.

    I rate this book 4 stars and I highly recommend it to readers.

    I received a free ebook of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This book is one that will make you think deep within you.

    On October, 2, 2006, a gunman entered an Amish one room schoolhouse, shooting ten little girls, killing five, then took his own life. This book is his mother's story. She not only lost her son but also had to deal with the fact that her precious boy had done the unbelievable. Charlie had been an honorable man, with morals and what everyone thought was a deep Christian faith. How and why would he commit this horrendous deed?

    The biggest question of all arose after the killings!! Her Amish neighbours did the unbelievable , reaching out to the family of the shooter with comfort and forgiveness. The media picked up on this unusual act and it made as many headlines in newspapers as did the murders themselves. In a cruel world, full of unforgiving individuals, there exists the Amish communities who forgive all! Not something that usually happens after a tragedy. Where is the anger and resentment???

    That is a question that we all ask. The answers can be found in this book, at least , from the viewpoint of the murderers family and the Amish themselves. Today, Terri, the mother, lives in harmony with the Amish and has built lasting relationships. No one could every have foreseen the empathy, forgiveness and friendship that Terri and her family have received to this day.

    This is a book that makes you think about your own life. The Amish have set an example for the world with their ability to live their faith! Are we able to do half as well?? The deep meaning stays with you long after the book has been read.

    Terri has told her story in a way in which we can all identify. Any mother could experience this! None of us has control over the actions of others, even our those of our beloved children.

    Definitely a book that has a purpose. We all need to think about how this tragedy and the results can change all of us.

    A five star book!
