    Great Book

    I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Mr. Eder provides a courageous incite into a horrible event that allows readers to truly experience what him and his family had to endure. I bought this book yesterday and stayed up until I finished it. Not only was it a very interesting account, but it was also something that everyone could relate to in some way.

    Couragiously Written and Extremelly Insightful

    This book is amazing! I couldn't put it down! Eder is beautifully spoken and writes with pure honesty, emotion, and detail. Of course I'll never know what it's like to be in his shoes but this book comes close. He makes the intense thoughts of a father, husband, teacher, and human being during a time of crisis so real to the reader. There are things in this book that we can all relate to like the loss of a loved one, questioning of your worthiness as a parent, and questioning your relationship with God. Eder raises the questions we have all considered at one point in our lives - How can an all loving God allow such horrible things to happen? and Are our troubles in life punishments from God? I highly reccomend this book to anyone and everyone. The content is universal wether you believe in a God or not, wether you believe the world is an evil place or a good place, we all have something to gain from understanding the experiences of others.
