About this audiobook

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.

    What an amazing testimony. Only some of us who have experienced such great loss can testify in the midst of our pain that ‘God is good all the time’. I’m amazed at Terry’s forgiving heart and the similarities in the godly love he displays towards his daughter. May God continue to strengthen Terry. May many come to Jesus through this testimony.

    I really really enjoyed this book. If this man can overcome all that’s happened to him, we can also. I feel that if you are a Christian and enjoy listening to True crime you will definitely like it. If you are not a believer you probably won’t like it but if you can get pass all the “God talk” the story of forgiveness and love will come through.

    I’m so glad it was an audiobook because the tears were streaming down my face and I would not be able to read the text. How the author was able to survive is remarkable. But with his faith in Jesus he was able to heal and forgive the ones who had done this unimaginable crime.
