In her debut book, The Unkind Companion, Marlo Peddycord Francis pulls from her own harrowing experiences with loss and offers the bereaved a glimpse into the first stages of healing with candid honesty and heartfelt compassion.

Not only does she teach us what it means to trust God when everything inside wants to curl up and quit but also what it means to develop a heart where peace and pain can coexist within the love of Christ. The Unkind Companion is a testimony of God's grace and abundant provision in an arena that too often leaves the broken-hearted weary and defeated. Let Marlo's experience encourage you to reach for the glorious future that God has awaiting those who will step out and believe that after loss there can be abundant life.

Outstanding grief resource--for victims and responders! Sep 14, 2007
As a USAF chaplain, I was especially intrigued by Marlo's story. Her transparent rendering of the tragic events she survived will encourage many who are journeying through grief. This book is a quick read and is an ideal resource for those who have suffered a traumatic loss. Additionally, the book is a reminder to those of us in "helping professions" of the need for extreme sensitivity during our early responses. Grief is complicated...there aren't any easy answers. Marlo's book has the potential to encourage and educate readers during the darkest hours of their lives. The book receives my highest recommendation!
Much more than a great read! Aug 21, 2007
This book ministered to my soul and spirit. I highly recommend it to anyone who has experienced loss in any area of life or knows someone who has. As a close family member of someone who recently lost her husband in the war, this book gave me such deeper insight to the emotions she must be experiencing yet at the same time - it helped me delve into those areas of my own life I still need to allow God to heal from different kinds of loss. I am looking forward with great expectation to the next books in the Widow's Might Trilogy.
This book touched my heart, soul and mind Aug 14, 2007
The timing of a writing like this is divine, especially with our country at war. This book would benifit anyone who has lost a dear loved one. Reading this book touched my life and pulled at my emotions in a way that was...comforting. Being a military family we want to thank Marlo for her sincerity and for giving us a tool to pass on.
Authentic and Personal Aug 6, 2007
This is such an authentic and personal book. It will help anyone who is struggling with loss, even if it is not the loss of a spouse. I highly recommend this book to those with fresh wounds who need to begin the healing process.
I have already given 4 copies of this book as gifts!!! Jul 31, 2007
Marlo's compelling story of her own journey through the valley of grief and mourning offers hope and encouragment to those who are traveling a similar road. This books reads as if you are sitting with Marlo in her kitchen over a cup of coffee as she tells her story. You will laugh with her and cry with her as she shares her life and her heart. I highly recommend this book not only to those who have experienced loss, but to anyone who appreciates stories of love, faith, and redemption.
