About the Book

On February 11, 1972, Wanda arrived home at 11:30 p.m. She was the charge nurse at a local nursing home. What she did not know was by 3:00 a.m. February 12, her life would be irrevocably changed by the unexpected violent death of her mother. Walk with Wanda through the cycles of homicidal loss. See how she was spiritually transformed. Allow her to help you regain hope and healing as she gently accompanies you in the aftermath of a loved one’s murder.

My Story, My Song: Daughter of a Murder Victim is Wanda’s story of her transition from devastation to spiritual transformation after the loss. Her story is an intimate and inspirational portrayal of how one can be transformed through grief and mourning while experiencing divine and human grace.
