In the summer of 2005, one of the most awful things that can happen to a family happened to the Bagbys. Their 25 year-old son Atiba, a motorcycle enthusiast, was clinging to life after a hit-and-run accident on the highway.
As Atiba's family huddled together for support and sought comfort in their faith in God, they prayed that he would make it through the night. What they never expected was an enduring family saga that would stretch to every corner of their lives.
Would his parents' marriage survive? How would his two kid brothers cope? What secrets did this family hold that would finally come to light? And who was driving the car that hit Atiba in the first place?
Through her unbearable pain, a mother relives those awful moments in this heart-throbbing, true-life account of her family's survival. She teaches us all that with the Lord's good grace and the courage to stand tall, anything except death can be fixed.
Part-mystery, part-love letter to her son, Shattered in a Split Second asks, when the world shuts down on you, and there's nowhere to turn,
what do you do? Do you crumble to your knees, or do you stand tall?

“Shattered in a Split Second” is a must read page turner, I just couldn’t put it down. It’s a heart-throbbing true-account of survival; she says “only through the grace of God.” The writing was so illustrative that I felt as if I were there. I cried and I laughed as I shared in her journey. I was elated how the family stood tall amidst life trying moments. The story is just unbelievably powerful and definitely a must read for all mothers, fathers, syblings, young people etc. The faith this women possess is truly amazing. This account will resonate with me forever. Kudos to you Vanessa Richardson Bagby… Great job!

When I first began reading this book, I didn't know what to expect, but through the author's engaging story, so many emotions within myself begin to rise.  As a parent you can relate to a mother's love not only for her child, but for God.  How she triumphed over a tragedy when so many others may have given up is encouragement.  I recommend this book to all as it is at times, entertaining, emotional and uplifting, an overall great read!
