Forgiven: The Amish School Shooting, a Mother's Love, and a Story of Remarkable Grace Paperback - 2015

by Terri Roberts; Jeanette Windle; Foreword by Beverly Lewis


From the rear cover

After a son does the unthinkable, how can a mother go on?

On October 2, 2006, a gunman entered an Amish one-room schoolhouse, shooting ten girls, killing five, then finally taking his own life. This is his mother's story. Not only did she lose her precious son through suicide, but she also lost her understanding of him as an honorable man. It was a trauma that none should ever have to face.

But the biggest headlines came when her Amish neighbors did the unimaginable, reaching out to the family of the shooter with comfort and forgiveness. Today Terri lives in harmony with the Amish and has built lasting relationships beyond what anyone could have thought possible. From the grace that the Amish showed Terri's family from day one, to the visits and ongoing care Terri has given to the victims and their families, no one could have foreseen the love and friendship that have been forged from the fires of tragedy.

"Caution advised: You won't be able to put this book down once you start reading."--Donald B. Kraybill, author of Amish Grace

"This riveting account, written by a brave and brokenhearted mother, may not be what you're expecting. In fact, it may surprise you. But it will surely present you with an enduring hope that can only come from the loving hand of our heavenly Father. You will be drawn, as I was, to embrace fully the miracle and blessing of forgiveness."--from the foreword by Beverly Lewis, bestselling author
