Peter's Story will Strengthen YOUR Faith Nov 13, 2008
Traveling Home was a difficult story to read...why does a 20 year old die of cancer? However, at every turn each person pointed to God. Peter said, "why not me?" I recommend this story to anyone facing a life threatening illness. It offers prayers and encouragement if you go to heaven today or at a "ripe old age." This is an unflinching look at life, death, faith and family.
A must for any parent who is faced with a similar tragic situation. Sep 4, 2008
Cancer isn't something that happens to twenty year olds. "Traveling Home: A Young Man's Story of Courage and Faith" is a mother and uncle's recollection of a man taken from the world far too soon. Peter Hill was diagnosed with a cancer at age twenty, passing away a year later. His acceptance of his fate at such a young age is the center of the story as they tell of his last months on this Earth and his embrace of God. "Traveling Home" is a must for any parent who is faced with a similar tragic situation.
Traveling Home Jul 4, 2008
This is a must read by anyone, especially someone who is going through the fear of cancer or has lost someone to cancer. This is not a story of sadness, but a story of courage and hope. I bought 10 more to give as gifts. Thank you Charlotte for opening up your heart and sharing your son with us.
Extraordinary death and life Jul 1, 2008
I've known about this story from the time it happened, but reading it again brings it afresh to me again. Because of Peter's story many lives have been changed including mine and even my neighbor down the street who happened to be just down the hall from Peter in the hospital when this extraordinary thing happened. It changed his life for eternity! Just lately, I was reading the book and asked my 13 year old grandson to read the forward. After he read it, I asked him if it made him feel better or worse. He slowly said, "It made me think."

With the impending death of Charlotte Hill's son Peter, Rev. Don Waite (Peter's uncle)writes letters to Peter offering hope without wishful thinking, truth without whitewashing the darkness and love without embarrassment. And, when Peter dies, his faith and the faith and strength of this family offer us all a way of communicating about death when it is so difficult to express ourselves. Peter's story is a great resource for anyone who is faced with the eminent death of a family member or close friend. Traveling Home: The right words for a difficult time.
