A12 to Heaven

I knew it was going to be a hard book to read ... how could it not be?

To lose two teenage daughters in a car crash, to drive past the crash scene on the way to the hospital, to return to your home and mourn with your other two children & family & friends.

To know the love of God through it all ...

I can't remember EVER crying all through the first chapter of a book. Not a classic easy read. Phil Stoddart's honesty & language & engaging style is disarming and powerful and deeply moving.

Some books simply need to be read - and this is one of them. But choose the right time when you read the first chapter ...
