What a an adorable child!; many people must have said when first meeting the precocious little girl on the front cover. Like a beautiful sunset before a long storm, her life was about to enter emotional turbulence that would last for decades. Can one innocent child endure years of abuse, rejection and condemnation and emerge from that with emotional health and spiritual stability? Can you or your loved ones hope for eventual peace from the storm? The First Stone reads like a novel with surprising twists and unexpected shocks, but ends with a survivor, a true overcomer. The First Stone will expand your understanding of God's grace and offer you reassurance during the worst of your trials.
