The untold story of how John Ramsey survived unspeakable tragedy and learned to hope again.
Like the biblical Job, John Ramsey had it all - wealth, social position, a loving family. And like Job, Ramsey was destined for great affliction, as many of the most precious things in his life were cruelly taken from him.
First came the death of his eldest daughter in a car accident in 1992. Then, four years later, his beloved six-year-old, JonBenét, was murdered; Ramsey was the one who discovered her body, concealed in the basement of his family's home. The case drew international media attention, and - compounding Ramsey's woe - suspicion unfairly focused on Ramsey and his wife, Patsy. Although they were ultimately cleared of any connection with the crime, Ramsey's sorrows did not end. In 2006, Patsy died, at 49, of ovarian cancer.
In this remarkable audiobook, Ramsey reveals how he was sustained by faith during the long period of spiritual darkness, and he offers hope and encouragement to others who suffer tragedy and injustice.

This is a story that needed to be told
This is a moving book, all the more so since John Ramsey narrated it himself. It is simply excellent.
This book tells the inside story of the famous JonBenet Ramsey case, and it was fascinating. It was also important to learn that Patsy Ramsey was nothing like the character that the media reported at the time ... and I believe the true villains in this tragic story are the Boulder Police and the national media, particularly CNN and CNN Headline News.
It was heartfelt and honest.
Story of Faith.
It is awesome to hear the actual author tell the story.
The first 1/3 at least is heartbreaking.
John Ramsey is great but I relate to his late wife. I loved the line about people paying to see excess in the Christmas decorating. Yes, she was confident and correct in giving them what they paid to see.
