Description

This is the true story of the brutal Texas murder that destroyed a family, restored one man’s faith, and shocked a nation… At 3:00 a.m. on March 1st, 2008, Terry Caffey awoke to find his daughter’s boyfriend standing in his bedroom with a gun. An instant later the teen opened fire, killing Terry’s wife, his two sons and wounding him 12 times, before setting the house ablaze. Terry fell into a deep depression and planned to kill himself, but God intervened. Upon visiting his burned out property, Terry noticed a scorched scrap of paper from one of his wife’s books leaning against a tree trunk. The page read, “[God,] I couldn’t understand why You would take my family and leave me behind to struggle along without them. And I guess I still don’t totally understand that part of it. But I do believe that You’re sovereign; You’re in control.” That page was like a direct message from God, and it turned Terry’s life around. Now, one year later, Terry is remarried, the adoptive father of two young sons, and working to rebuild his relationship with his 17-year-old daughter, who is currently serving two life sentences in a Texas state penitentiary for her involvement in the crimes.

    This is a very sad but inspiring story. I encourage anyone thinking about reading this to do it. God will speak to you in some way and bless you. My prayers are with the author and his family.

    A good book and a truly heart rending story . It was an emotional read and I'm really glad Mr. Caffey was able to find peace after these horrible events. I wont critique his decision to not push for the death penalty but I certainly would have. I haven't walked a mile in his moccasins though, so I'll hold my peace.

    Throughout the entire story I wondered what happened to the family dog. A great story of forgiveness and loss.

    This got two stars because I was expecting, from the title and description to read true crime. It was more memoir then true crime.Also very religious.

    I cannot imagine going through what this family went through. The pain and suffering for the father has to be a phenomenal level. I am sure the book is therapy for Terry Caffey and his story must be told. Although his story resonated with me, the book or the writing did not. One thumb up.
