Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed inspirational author W. Dale Cramer pens the tale of an Amish prodigal's struggle for faith and forgiveness. As Will returns to bury his dad, his mind flashes back 42 years to when he fled his Amish heritage, abandoning his unborn child's mother and inflicting pain only a parent can fathom. Now he understands that pain. And he thinks of all those years of silence, all those words never spoken. But as his father lies cold and still, is all hope for healing gone?

This is my second Dale Cramer and I enjoyed it as much as the first. His books are called inspirational and I'd agree. This isn't a thriller but in its own way you can't put it down or you, at least, keep thinking about it. The Amish have come to live in the part of Iowa where I grew up and this book gave me a better understanding of what they stand for. And, after listening to this book they stand for lots of good things, a good way of life. As Will strives for forgiveness and comes to accept his life, you can't help but feel good.........
