Powerful Story about Redemption

I was not sure what to expect from the book, From This Day Forward: A Love Story of Faith, Hope and Forgiveness, written by Amy and Matt Baumgardner.  This was a very moving and honest book from start to finish. 

This is a story about a couple who seem to have it all.  Their lives and marriage, their children; everything seemed perfect.  Then Amy began drinking and not caring for herself, ultimately leading to a car accident in which she was drunk and critically injured their daughter. 

The couple go back and forth recounting their story to help others who may be in a similar situation not to lose hope.  They discuss the struggles, the despair and in the end, the coming back together of their marriage.  They are not preachy about alcohol and addictions.  Instead they are honest about discussing how this addiction dramatically impacted their lives.

I believe this book can help others.  It was well written and worth the time to read.

I received this book through Netgalley.com, and  HCI Publishers.
