Another tearjerker. ( )

The story centers around the theme of depression. The book opens with the central character wrestling with the misconception that Christians (which is what she is) are not supposed to get depressed, for it draws the extension that one's faith is weak, or that one is not a good enough believer, or that one is a 'bad person'.

Being trapped in the darkness of one's mind is still predominantly perceived as a taboo subject and a shameful admission. So the victims suffer quietly behind masks, some really struggling to get through day-to-day living, trying their best to hold onto the vestiges of normalcy, so as not to be judged by others.

Bottom line: Extend compassion to everyone you meet, for you do not know what they are battling with -- it might either be an ailment of the body or mind, but a listening ear and a caring heart, goes a long way in working wonders. And if you, or anyone you know, is battling an unseen phantom of the mind -- do reach out and seek help.

When I read this book, I cried. Karen Kingsbury weaves a tale that is both poignant and heartfelt, with characters easily identified with. This is a story of hope and redemption, a story of God's unfailing love in a time when all seems lost.

Maggie Stovall has the perfect life and the perfect husband. Yet underneath, her heart is broken and her soul is shattered. A little girl named Amanda Joy is one of the forgotten children. Given up, abused...yet her faith remains strong.

This book will bring tears to your eyes. It is truly heartbreaking, amazing, wonderful! God does perform miracles...you just have to trust in Him. ( )

This book should come with a disclaimer telling you to grab a box of tissue before reading! A great book though! ( )

This is the first Kingsbury book I read. It made me cry. She has a way of touching the heart. ( )

Donald, who is and has been my very best friend regardless of the storms of life. Thank you for believing in me, loving me, and praying for me as if your life depended on it. Persecution is a promise in the kingdom of God, but with you by my side the lessons we learned this past year are both vivid and welcomed. My greatest joy is knowing you are by my side, now and forever.
    Kelsey, caught somewhere between the oh-so-cute little girl and the tenderly precious young woman whose image grows clearer with each passing season. Whether kicking a soccer ball, mastering a math test, or seeking God's heart on the daily dilemmas of growing up, you are proving yourself to be intensely committed, deeply devoted, sincere, genuine, and true. I am the most blessed mom in the world to have the privilege of calling ou my daughter, my little Norm, my song.
    Tyler, tall, strong, and handsome---in the days of becoming, it is clear the type of man you'll be. And yet now, for a short while, you're still a little boy, remembering to pick a dandelion for me on family walks. Kind and compassionate, always ready to share, thinking of others. When I look at you, so often I see your daddy. And on may wonderful moments I see your Father, too. If I could bottle your zest for life, your sincerity, and share them with others, the world would be a different place.
    Keep your eyes on the goal, son; God has great plans for you. I love you always.
    Austin, no longer making baby steps but running through our house and our hearts. It's marvelous to see the way God has made you focused---gifted with the ability to master an action regardless of the time and energy involved. Even more amazing are the glimpses of a tender heart beneath the toughness---"Daddy, I'm going to kiss your wife . . . ."
    Mingled with your three-year-old laughter are words that will ring through the decades. I remain always in awe of the miracle of your life.
    And to my loving Lord and Savior, who has, for now, blessed me with these.

The Descent

Weeping may endure for a night,
but joy comes in the morning.

Psalm 30:5

Prologue

Six days had passed since Laura Thompson's job as a mother had officially ended.
    The wedding had gone off without a hitch, and the last of Laura's four babies was out of the house, ready---like his siblings---to build a life of his own. She would always be their mom, of course, and in time she and Larry would welcome grandbabies and opportunities to visit with their grown children.
