Only a Shadow (Paperback)
A lemonade stand, a principals tender heart, a Bundt cake, and a young boys invitation to a funeral all come together to begin this extraordinary journey. Does everything happen for a reason? Is there such a thing as divine providence? How does one reconcile belief in a merciful God of love with the inscrutable, inequitable nature of human suffering? Only A Shadow is an amazing story of resilience, perseverance, and the power hidden in a single moment. It tells a tale of a remarkable relationship and examines the myriad of ways that the human spirit endeavors to accept and deal with trials that come with the gift of life.
