    Worth the Trouble

    I actually had to dig a little in order to find this book, but it was SO worth it. I happened to see the title in passing and noticed that it was the memoirs of a woman who had been raped and then had made the difficult decision to have the baby. Thinking I would remember the title that had piqued my interest, I went on. Months later it was not so easy to find. There is not a shred of self-pity. In straight forward, but lyric prose, Ms. Gemmen shares the struggles and strengths that come when one truly surrenders his/her will to God's care. There is no preaching, judgment, or moralizing, simply a story that is inspirational and uplifting.

    Powerful and Inspiring

    This book was impossible for me to put down. It also brought me to tears many many times. Heather's story will no doubt help inspire those touched by the same pain, and those who haven't endured such pain. It inspired me that God is good. This book is about hope and restoration. I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone.

    Amazing and 'Startling'

    Heather's beautiful story really hit home and opened my eyes to God's grace once more. Not only has her example taught me so much about forgiveness towards those who have hurt us, but her openness and honesty about racism has also made me face my own issues. Thanks to her for not only revealing such a vulnerable side of herself, but also to Steve, Deshawn, Simon, Chad, and especially Rachael, for opening their lives to us as well. Heather has done such an amazingly ('startlingly') beautiful job of describing something so ugly and evil. God's light definitely shines through her. I really recommend this book to anyone and everyone who has gone through a rape, known someone who has gone through a rape, or even just wants to learn how to be more compassionate towards someone who has been through this most violating crime. I can't say enough good about this book.

    An Amazing Story

    Heather's telling of her and her husband's difficult journey brought tears to my eyes many times. She honestly shares difficult situations and emotions, and by doing so gives the glory to God for his work in their lives. Heather is a gifted storyteller. I couldn't put the book down - I had to know how it all worked out - so I read it in one long sitting. By the time I reached the epilogue I was in awe of her as a woman, and was reminded of the goodness of God in everything. I heartily recommend this book!

    Get ready for an amazing journey!

    This book is a gift to the world. Heather's writing made me feel like a part of each moment in her life. I felt I was a neighbor, a church member, a hospital employee, and live witness during her darkest moments in the book. I felt very honored to read such a personal story that Heather has chosen to share with the world. It was insightful and uplifting.
