My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have two words to describe this book...powerful and insightful. It is a quick read, but one that will stay with you long after you put it down. Jeanne Bishopchronicles her struggle with the death of her sister and her killer in Change of Heart: Justice, Mercy, and Making Peace with My Sister's Killer. Jeanne describes, in gut-wrenching detail, her sister's murder, the trial, and the impact it had on her family. This is the story of love, loss, anger, faith, but most of all forgiveness. One of my favorite quotes is "We can't determine the response of the one we are forgiving. We can only say to him, "What you did was unspeakable. You have left a hole in my heart that can never be filled. Yet, I forgive you.' He might choose to accept that forgiveness or to reject it. The bottom line here is not success; the bottom line is faithfulness." What an emotional read! Truly inspirational!
