About the Author
I live in Kansas City with my wife Molly and three children. I'm a Christian by religion,a Methodist by denomination and a Seeker by nature.
I wrote the trilogy "Rachel's Confession" in response to a question my eight-year-old daughter asked at my father's funeral. Dad had just died after a long battle with cancer, and my daughter wanted to know "What kind of God would allow that kind of suffering?"
At the time I had no answer, so I went in search of one. In the process, I rediscovered my faith, and came to understand God in a way I had not known before. As a result of my search, I wrote the trilogy.
Part 1 is "The Confession." Part 2 is "The Journey" and Part 3 "The Promise" will be available in the spring of 2013.
The Reverend Molly Simpson of Church of the Resurrection (the largest Methodist Church in the United States" had this to say: "If you have ever wrestled with the question 'Where was God when?' then allow Rachel's story to take your imagination on a journey towards healing"
I've also written a Christian-based thriller entitled "The Shroud of Mar-Saba."

This book is so well-written, and made such a deeply profound impact on my heart and faith. I was moved by The Shack but found it complicated and at times too much to digest. The Confession, however, is written in such a clear and simple way...you feel Rachel's hopelessness and God's unfailing love and desire for us to be whole. Kudos to the author! This is a must read!
Reading this book was a blessing and I definitely a plan to re-read it. The insights and encouragement gleaned from this novel make it well worth another reading. Mr Ladd has created a very sympathetic character in Rachel. Her attempts to find her way through a series of heartbreaks by reliance on self-effort will be familiar to most of us. When she reaches a place where all such efforts have failed her and she literally has nowhere else to go, her journey takes an unanticipated turn. Allow yourself the gift of travelling along with Rachel! You will be enlightened and inspired. I look forward to reading the second installment in this trilogy (also available in the Nook store) -- The Journey !
contains many theological errors.
