      Marie is an excellent writer. You feel like you are right there with her as she writes about the unspeakable tragedy that invaded her life and thrust her into a sudden storm of darkness. In her darkest moment, she was given a precious gift that she could not keep to herself. That gift was: No matter how tragic your circumstances, your life is not a tragedy. It is a love story. And in your love story, when you think all the lights have gone out, one light still shines.

      I recently finished reading Marie Monville's book called "One Light Still Shines." It's not a new book...it was actually published in 2013, but I just learned of it a few months ago when the radio host I worked for interviewed Marie. Chances are, you're familiar with a piece of Marie's story already. Her first husband, Charlie, was the man who ambushed an Amish schoolhouse in Pennsylvania back in 2006, shooting ten girls, killing five of them before killing himself. You've seen the story from the media's side...read about it in the tabloids...but there is so much more to it than what they told. Marie's book isn't the documentary of the crime. It's an intricately woven love story...between Charlie and Marie...between the Lord and Marie...and between God's kinsman-redeemer, Dan Monville, and Marie.

      In this beautifully written book, Marie cracks open the window to her heart and faith and shares unashamedly the wrestling of horror, heartbreak, confusion, ache, hope, and worship that permeated her life after she received the news of what Charlie did. She tells of their love, their life, their losses, and why she was as baffled as the rest of the nation when she learned of the shooting. And she hides nothing of her faith, which is in no way a flippant faith, but a deep, raw relationship with the Lord.

      A good book not only tells a story, but calls the reader to action, and Marie did this masterfully. I was compelled to deepen my own intimacy with the Lord as I read. The end of the book tells her love story with her now-husband, Dan Monville, and in it, I was reminded of my own love story with my husband and affirmed in the uniquely beautiful ways God writes and weaves such tales.

      I highly recommend this book. I'm often skeptical of books spawned by high profile news stories, but Marie's book is, as the cover promises, about her life beyond the shadow of being the shooter's wife. It's about her heart, her faith, her God and HIS redemption and restoration. {And I cried. It's a good book if it drives me to legitimate tears.}

      Every once in a while I come across a book that I am unable to put down and that I wished would continue. Marie's story is a wonderful story of God's faithfulness and grace throughout a sobering tragedy. It is written with genuine honestly and gives glory to our Lord and Savior.

      A must read!! You will not be disappointed!

      If I could sum up this book in one word it would be AMAZ-WOW-RIFFIC! Y'all, I could not put this book down once I started it. And when I wasn't reading it, I couldn't wait until I finished my chores so I could get straight back to reading it.

      This beautifully written and heart-wrenching memoir will leave no reader untouched. What an amazing testimony Marie has. Marie was the wife of Charlie Roberts, the man who committed a brutal massacre at an Amish schoolhouse. With one phone call, in a matter of minutes, Marie's life changed forever. Charlie was dead and so were at least three little Amish girls, and the others gravely wounded.

      Marie revealed her heart through her book and shared her struggles as she began to pick up the pieces and move on after the tragedy. She reflected on God's love surrounding her and the support of her family and friends as each day passed.

      This story will absolutely touch your heart and will be one you won't soon forget. This is an amazing read, I highly recommend it!
