This book started out a little confusing but once I got the gist of it man it was remarkable. I really enjoyed reading this book. This story is truly about being lost and then being found. Yes the little girl was taken and never to return but the lost one was Mack. After losing the most precious person in his life he lost himself in a ditch of sorrow, guilt, anger, and sadness. For years he did not return to himself until one day he was found. He found happiness again and was delivered from his guilt and anger. A story about true forgiveness and what it's like to see things through God's eye. This story made me cry and smile all in the same chapter.… (més)

I can’t recommend this book enough. Not the mystery I was expecting, but a study on God’s mercy. After his daughter is murdered, Mac Philips’ and his family’s is tested. It is at a visit to the sight of Missy’s murder that he comes face-to-face with God. Great story, great characters, much to think about (whether you agree with this point of view or not). [If you like this book, you should check out The Hawk and the Dove” series by Penelope Wilcox.

while I appreciate the desire to answer age old questions-the need to understand how an all powerful and loving God can allow evil to exist in the world- I found the quality of the story and writing to interfere with the message
