Item description for Tilly by Frank E. Peretti, Michael W. Smith & Debbie Smith...
Overview A deeply moving story of forgiveness for a woman who struggles to reconcile herself with the memory of a child she aborted nine years previously.
"Kathy looked at the little gravestone again. Now she could see it clearly. It bore just that one name: Tilly. . . . She couldn't take her eyes away. She didn't want to. She stooped down to look.Only one date. Only one. Nine years ago."
Kathy and Dan Ross are just like any other young couple. No one would ever imagine what secrets lie buried in their souls until Kathy is captivated by that simple name on a tiny gravestone and their lives are changed forever. Originally presented as a radio drama on Focus on the Family, Tilly is a deeply moving novel-an unforgettable story of life, love, and Christ's forgiveness.

More About Frank E. Peretti, Michael W. Smith & Debbie Smith
With more than 15 million novels in print, Frank Peretti is nothing short of a publishing phenomenon and has been called “America’s hottest Christian novelist.” The Oath (Word Publishing 1995), sold more than half a million copies within the first six months of release. The Visitation (Word Publishing 1999), was #1 on the CBA Fiction Bestseller list for four months. Born in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada in 1951, Frank is a natural storyteller who, as a youngster in Seattle, regularly gathered the neighborhood children for animated storytelling sessions, drew comics, and tapped out stories on his mother’s portable typewriter.
His journey toward becoming a writer had its side trips. After graduating from high school, he began playing banjo with a local bluegrass group, then worked as a musician and odd-job man for a small recording studio.
Shortly after he and his wife Barbara were married in 1972, Frank toured with a pop band and then a modest Christian music ministry. He later studied English, screen writing and film at UCLA before spending five years helping his father pastor a small Assembly of God church in the Seattle area. During those five years he labored at night, on weekends, any chance he got, to write his first novel, This Present Darkness, the book that would catapult him into the public eye – eventually. Numerous publishers rejected the novel and Frank gave up his pastoring position to work in construction and odd jobs to make ends meet. Even after Crossway Books published This Present Darkness in 1986, the novel sat on store shelves largely unnoticed.
Two years later, Frank was working at a local ski factory when word-of- mouth enthusiasm finally lifted This Present Darkness onto a tidal wave of interest in spiritual warfare. The book appeared on Bookstore Journal’s bestseller list every month for more than eight years. His two spiritual warfare novels, This Present Darkness (1986) and Piercing the Darkness (1989), captivated readers, together selling more than 3.5 million copies. The Oath was awarded the 1996 Gold Medallion Award for best fiction.
For kids, Frank wrote The Cooper Kids Adventure Series (Crossway and Tommy Nelson), which remains a best-selling series for children with sales exceeding 1 million copies. In August 2000, Peretti released the hilarious children’s audiocassette series titled Wild and Wacky Totally True Bible Stories, reprising his role as Mr. Henry, the offbeat substitute Sunday School teacher found in two Visual Bible for Kids videos. In 2000, Frank released his first-ever non-fiction book, The Wounded Spirit, in which he deals with the problem of bullying.
In all, including his current work, Illusion, Frank has written nineteen books of various size for various ages.
Frank and Barbara live a simple life in rural Idaho. He leads worship at their church, Barbara paints in watercolor, and they enjoy being with their close friends.

I read this book in 2 hours and couldn't put it down. It is a wonderful healing book for anyone but especially for someone with abortion in their past. May God bless you with this book as He has blessed me.
Here are wonderful post abortion bible studies that will walk you through complete healing. Forgiven and Set Free: A Post-Abortion Bible Study for Women Surrendering The Secret (Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion)
Spectacular Aug 13, 2008
A very moving story about a great tragedy that affects all of us whether or not we have experienced personally the loss of a child. I highly recommend this book to anyone who suffers from the guilt associated with this topic.
I was expecting so much more... Jul 16, 2008
I was really wanting this to be so much more than it turned out to be. I am extremely pro-life and have had a miscarriage. I was hoping to feel some comfort or at least be an outlet for some healthy grieving. Although I feel this book had a few decent ideas I didn't feel a connection to this book at all. It was a little confusing at times and didn't really feel a connection with the characters.

Such a wonderful story that goes to the heart of the abortion issue in a beautiful way. My daughters loved it, too.
