Letters from my Father's Murderer ~ Laurie A. Coombs

Laurie tells the truth and pain about forgiveness.  Her story of how her father is murdered and the suffering she experiences to have forgiveness for the person responsible for his death. 

This is not the fluffy, happy story of Laurie corresponding with her father's murderer (serving life in prison); it is a very true and heartbreaking book of how she heals and how to forgive.  She starts to communicate through letters and becoming a friend to the one responsible for such a devastating tragedy in her life. By her faith and commitment to follow GOD, she learns forgiveness is a journey she must take on her own walking with GOD.

I would recommend this to those that want to have a meaningful read.  If you have a problem with forgiveness, this is the book for you.  It is a must read that will leave you feeling compassion and wondering if you have forgiven those in your own life as GOD tells you to.
