Reviews - What do customers think about Goodbye Is Not Forever?
Goodbye is not for ever Aug 10, 2008
The books arrived in good condition and promptly but surprised to receive three copies and charged for three copies when I only ordered one.
God is faithful Jun 30, 2007
In the early '90's, I listened to a Christian radio progam called People to People which was begun by Bob George as an outreach to people who were "churched," but had missed the mark that true Christianity is really about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Amy George is Bob's wife. She was born in the Ukraine. I have heard her testimony and it is touching indeed. Her gentle manner comes through in her writing and her speech and her demeanor.
When Goodbye Is Not Forever was first published, I bought one and later bought multiple copies to give to friends with whom I taught school. Even now--some 12 or 13 years after it was published, I still am giving away copies to friends.
The most awesome example in the whole book for me related the story of Amy's father who had survived labor camps in Siberia. They were reunited some 40 years later. I will not totally give away the results of that meeting, but I will say that I cried, and I thanked God for His faithfulness and mercy to us.
I read this book several years after my husband and I lost our 12 year old son in an accident. After the period of intense grief, a sense of peace begins to take hold, and if, indeed, we are followers of Christ, we know that death is not the end. This book comforted me in ways that Amy George will never know this side of Heaven.
Goodbye is Not Forever Jan 11, 2007
This true story of Amy George's childhood in Russia and Germany before and during World War II, is gripping! This is a book that is hard to put down once you start reading it. It is amazing to see how God had his hand on this family and worked out His plan for them.
Miracles are real. God is good. Feb 19, 2001
If you have ever doubted that miracles happen to ordinary people, read this book. The story of Amy's life is one miracle after another. The greatest miracle is the joy and peace and love that radiate from Amy George. I've met her, and I can testify that her face shines with the joy of the Lord. She is a great lady. I had no idea that her history was so tragic until I was given a copy of this book, which I couldn't put down. Amy's story prompts me to praise Jesus for His goodness and mercy. I'm thankful to Amy for sharing her story; she has blessed my life.
Outstanding story Jan 24, 2001
Reading Goodbye Is Not Forever wasn't easy. As I flipped the pages one by one, tears would come down my cheeks. My husband and I were reading the book together. At times I had to let my husband continue the reading when it was still my turn to read since I couldn't anymore.
Having grown up in a communist country myself, for the first time in my life I was reading a story I could relate to. Amy's story, as she herself says, represents the untold stories of millions of people that suffered under communism and the Nazis.
Goodbye Is Not Forever is a book to be read by everyone because it speaks of God's unfailing love and faithfulness in the midst of suffering.
