Overview

Precious in Her Father's Eyes begins with the mother having an extraordinary spiritual encounter. In the midst of her anguish, the words "everything is going to be all right" inspire faith and emotional reassurance. These words are the sustaining thread woven throughout the book, giving the mother emotional and physical endurance as she searches for the people and places that can heal her daughter. These same words take on an unexpected meaning on the day of her daughter's death. The search, born of stubborn persistence and sincere faith in God, leads the reader on a roller coaster of experiences; horrific, comedic, and heartwarming.

This is not a book with a typical happy ending yet it manages to show how in the midst of a horrible situation, parts of the human self can be drawn out -- our intuitive self, our spiritual self, our self-sacrificing abilities.

Precious in Her Father's Eyes fulfills a need we all have to read about real people who are willing to live by the convictions of their hearts and who believe that every life is valuable.
