Reviews - What do customers think about Gone In A Heartbeat?

SO WELL WRITTEN  Oct 14, 2009
This was a story of love and care in a desperate situation. Even though it was very sad, it came across as a total victory for the families involved. Faith in God, who is able to take us through situations, and healing, which allows us to grow stronger after the situation; these are the tenets of true victory!
good  Apr 18, 2009
I like this book. It makes you stop and think about life how quick you can lose people that you love.
Awesome Story of Forgiveness  Jan 18, 2009
I read this book in a day. It's the true story of a family whose two teenage daughters were shot and killed as the family prepared to leave their church one Sunday. The story is told by both the mother and father alternately. The way these parents and their two surviving daughters dealt with the experience was inspiring and makes for a fascinating read. May God bless the Works family and their New Life Church family in Colorado Springs!
An Amazing Story  Jan 17, 2009
Tragedy, when it strikes your life, takes on a whole new meaning...

This book shares an in depth look into the lives of the Works family. We journey with them from the happy togetherness they once had, through the tragic shooting of three family members, to coping with an altered future.

The writing is very descriptive and emotionally stimulating. You may find yourself crying right beside them or heaving a sigh of relief when a small milestone is passed. Most of the story is told from the point of view of David, the father or Marie, the mother. The way it is denoted. "I (David) felt... or I (Marie) felt..." was distracting to me and interrupted the flow to some degree.

The book is written in chronological order, sharing experiences, dreams and plans of the Works family. You have the opportunity to see a glimpse of their personalities and understand there lives before, during, and after the traumatic events. The writing is so visual that you can see it unfold as if you were standing right there.

This is a Christian family and as such they constantly rely on the hand of God in their everyday lives, turning to Him always in their time of need. They emulate the principles of forgiveness, love and faith and by so doing touch lives around the world.

This book places emphasis on religious teachings and practices as experienced by the Works family but it doesn't come across in a "preachy" sort of way.

If you have recently lost a loved one to a tragic event you may find comfort and eventually strength by reading this incredible story.

Religious content but "not preachy".
