“Where was God when ____? How could God allow ____? Why?”
Chad Veach is an author that can most assuredly get the emotion from the tale into the reader. I truly felt the anguish he described when the excitement gave way to the disease that is upon their daughter. This was a new disease to me, and it is so very tragic.
Having lost a child in my life, I can understand that hope only to have it die in your heart.
I have not had the same experiences, but I do get part of the tale. That hope that you have for happy and healthy.
I felt that the story was slightly not quite on point. The author talks about hope in a way that makes it seem like it's just there and God is giving it to you, you just aren't taking ahold of it. This is never said outright, it was just the way I took it.
I would have like to have a lot more scriptural basis in the narrative.
