About the Book

No one is immune to crime. Behind the Darkest Hours is the realization that the road back into living a new life is a process. Victims’ lives aren’t neatly wrapped up in a one-hour drama and a myth called closure. You never forget the loss. It is a true inspirational and powerful story of prayer, faith, and forgiveness that brought us from personal tragedies to public triumphs.

The general public only gets a glimpse of real-life tragedies from media visualization and media sensationalism, without a real understanding of daily living for the families involved. When bystanders turn off the news, they go to sleep and forget, while those families weep.

Behind the Darkest Hours is a source of encouragement and strength to victims and their families to survive beyond the pain and agony of victimization. It’s an encouragement for everyone to hold on to hope.

Even in the most horrific circumstances, we can still survive. Most importantly, God is still present. Readers should be encouraged to know that God is trustworthy and he honors faith.
