rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a true story that everyone should read. Written simply and clearly Debbie Morris details her horrible trauma at the hands of a pair of rapists and killers.
The book describes her path since the abduction, leading to being able to forgive her captors. It was a long and difficult path, but one that I think we can all learn from. It was only after she was able to come to the position of being able to forgive that she could recover and move on from the ordeal. The refusal to forgive and desire to hang on to the hate will only eat you up.
I like that her forgiveness didn’t make her seem weak and glib. What she endured was awful but not unforgivable. Not unforgettable or un-punishable, but possible to forgive.
The main perpetrator was executed and wasn’t believed to ever show any remorse, so the act of forgiveness was for herself, for her own recovery and sanity.
Well done for sharing with us the journey I say !
This book will be an encouragement for anyone struggling with unforgiveness.
