Publisher's Summary

"I had no idea who has just hit us, and my mind didn't think to consider if they were all right or not, or what circumstances might have caused them to cross the median and strike us. I simply looked at the car in silence. Then I heard a voice that was not my own in my mind as clearly as if it had come from someone seated next to me. It was straightforward and filled with power, and the voice said, 'Let it go!'"
On a cold February night in 2007, a devoted father of four and a seventeen-year-old drunk driver both received life sentences. In one violent, devastating instant, both faced a drastically different - and uncertain - future. But as Chris Williams sat in his demolished vehicle, staring at the car that had just caused the death of his wife, his unborn baby, his nine-year-old daughter, and his eleven-year-old son, he committed to do something extraordinary: he would forgive.
That decision launched Chris on a journey toward healing that affected his family and friends, the young man who caused the accident, and an entire community - a community that would face another deadly tragedy just a few days later. Chris's message of forgiveness is an empowering invitation to all who have suffered, however unjustly, to lay down their burdens and let it go.


What the Critics Say

"One of the most powerful true stories of forgiveness, redemption, and love that I have ever read!" (Paul Cardall, Billboard-charting recording artist and producer)

All About Forgiveness

A heart breaking yet very uplifting book, it is the story of a horrendous automobile accident that took the lives of Williams' wife, daughter, son and unborn baby. Chris knew from the moment he realized that so many of his family were dead that he had to forgive the intoxicated teenager for what he did. Although that sounds simplistic, cut and dried, it was hardly that easy. It was a long, hard road back to some kind of normalcy for Chris and his two surviving sons. It is a story of the road to forgiveness and triumph over the baser human instincts in search of the sublime. Chris gives us a model to follow when troubles, many times so much less severe than what he endured, beset each of us.
