(FROM LITFUSE)
Can God heal the deepest wounds and redeem what seems unredeemable? Laurie Coombs experiences God’s transforming and redemptive power in her new book, Letters from My Father’s Murderer. When her father was murdered, Laurie Coombs and her family sought justice―and found it. Yet, despite the swift punishment of the killer, Laurie found herself increasingly full of pain, bitterness, and anger she couldn’t control. It was the call to love and forgive her father’s murderer that set her, the murderer, and several other inmates on the journey that would truly change their lives forever.

Letters from My Father's Murderer PK

Letters from My Father’s Murderer: A Journey of Forgiveness (Kregel, June 2015)
When her father was murdered, Laurie Coombs sought justice and found it.
His murderer now serves two life sentences with no possibility of parole. Yet, despite the swift punishment of the killer, Laurie found herself increasingly full of pain, bitterness, and anger she couldn’t control. After coming to faith, she realized she was being called to seek something infinitely more difficult than justice: forgiveness.
This is an extraordinary true story of grace, mercy, and the redemptive power of God to change lives. The reader is swept along with Laurie as she undergoes the life-changing transformation of becoming a Christian. As she studies Scripture, seeing God redeeming losses and healing deep wounds time and time again, she starts to understand that her own healing would require her to love her enemy in a real, practical way.
Using her incredible correspondence with the man who killed her father, Laurie reveals a compelling journey of transformation, not only in her life, but in the lives of those whom many would call irredeemable.
Letters from My Father’s Murderer is for any audience Christian or secular who
—Craves freedom from the inability to forgive those who’ve caused them harm
—Wants to hear testimony of God’s power in our obedience
—Has experienced pain through other’s sin against them
—Needs to know healing is always possible
The real story here is not primarily about murder and its fallout, but rather about redemption and how far it can reach.

REVIEW
This is a lovely true story that everyone should read.  A story of forgiveness and complete redemption.  As you read Ms. Coombs story of the relationship between her and her father's murderer you will have an array of emotions, everything from laughing  to crying.
The relationship between her and her father's murderer also enforced her relationship between her and her faith.
The author wrote a powerful book of forgiveness, but more so of redemption.  Ms. Coombs went through a lot of emotions, bitterness, anger and others that she just couldn't get under control.  It was going to take more than just saying I forgive you.  Much more.  Everyone should read this book.  It's amazing.  A terribly hurt woman who overcame her bad emotions and learned to strengthen her faith and learn to transform. A MUST READ!

I was given a complimentary copy of LETTERS FROM MY FATHER'S MURDERER from the author, Laurie Coombs and Litfuse Publicity for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
