Dana Wichterman, BFF of the author
"Told with truth and heart, this is the journey of one family's struggle with that worst parents fear: abuse of their own children. Striking and resonant, their amazing story of forgiveness and hope is an inspiration to all."
S. Freele, Author and Editor
"Suffering is hard enough, but when those closest to you suffer, it can rip you apart. Read how one family chose, by God's grace, the hard but higher road to turn 'bitter' into 'better.'"
