The riveting new memoir from Rev. Sharon Risher on the horrific tragedy that shattered her family's life ... and the long road toward forgiveness in the face of unspeakable evil. 

How can you forgive the unforgivable? When she realized she’d missed several calls from her daughter, Reverend Sharon Risher sensed something was horribly wrong. News broke of violence at Emanuel AME Church, the church of her youth in Charleston, South Carolina, and she knew her mother was likely in the church at Bible study. Even before she heard the news, her chaplain’s instinct told her the awful truth: her mother was dead, along with two cousins. What she couldn’t imagine was that they had been murdered by a white supremacist. Plunged into the depths of mourning and anger and shock, Sharon could have wallowed in the pain. Instead, she chose the path of forgiveness and hope – eventually forgiving the convicted killer for his crime.

"When you read Reverend Sharon Risher's phenomenal life story, you will want to hug her, cry with her, laugh with her. She sweeps you up with her unstoppable spirit." --Abigail Pesta, award-winning journalist and author Discount
