From the back cover: “I’m afraid there’s been a car accident…”
As Hannah Ryan waits for her family to return home from a camping trip, she realizes she has everything going for her—a husband other women admire, two charming teenage daughters, and a loving Christian home. As the sunny afternoon turns into twilight, her uneasiness grows along with the shadows. Then a car pulls into Hannah’s driveway, bringing two police officers…and devastating news that shatters her life forever.
In the days that follow, Hannah struggles with unspeakable feelings of sorrow and rage—feelings that fuse into one chilling purpose for living: revenge against Brian Wesley, the drunk driver who has caused all her pain.
In her fury, Hannah shuts the Lord out of her life. She’s determined not to forgive Wesley or the God who allowed this tragedy to happen. Can two caring people help Hannah rediscover her faith…before bitterness destroys her?
Lamentations is not an oft-quoted book from The Bible as we tend to shy away from it because we do not like to lament because of the pain involved. Let’s face it at some point pain will visit all of us. Now, not all of us deal with pain and suffering in the same manner. For some of us there is the need to lash out, to try to make someone else feel pain, especially when they are the one who is the cause of our pain. The need for revenge. That is the story of Hannah. She wants the drunk driver who killed her husband and one daughter to pay and suffer like she is. The problem is not only is she blaming God for her troubles and shutting Him out but she is also neglecting her remaining daughter. This is an amazing story. Hannah is a likable character that doesn’t really know how to deal with the overload of pain and suffering. Hannah is a lot like most of us and it is almost a healing for us too as we read about her progress. Ms. Kingsbury has given us a great ride in this book and she has provided us with wonderful characters that we rally around and root for.
