Pam: Life beyond Death; Joy beyond Grief Review/Giveaway (:

About the book:
An anxious voice accosts a young mother as she picks up the phone. An elementary school secretary notifies her that her daughter Pam may have been in a serious accident. But why this call when Pam, a middle schooler, rides a public, not a school bus, home? Yet because this secretary takes the time to phone her, this mother responds to her suggestion to immediately call 911.
Was the dispatcher awaiting her call?! His disconcertingly accurate questions, punctuated with progressively detailed and accurate information only she could know, lends credence to that impression. Initial relief that the victim, first described as someone far younger, dissipates before a parent's worst fear: has the unthinkable truly happened? To them?
In PAM, a family miracle unfolds, unveiling a God Who actively and directly redeems--even uses--their loss for good. In the process, healing and restoration powerfully emerge to transform hopeless grief into inspired conviction that there is--indeed--Life Beyond Death, Joy Beyond Grief.

My review:
I thought this book was really good. I would not say it is like one of the best books I have read but it is a good book. I thank this author for putting her heart into her work. I totally look forward to buying and reading more of Christy's books.
