What Went Away Book Description :

If you have ever asked God Why? or if you have ever thought God made a mistake, maybe this is your book. If you are feeling wounded and shuttled between life abundant and life abandoned, then maybe What Went Away is written for you. Our children die. Our dreams shatter. Loved ones walk away. Chronic days of illness steal our joys. One mistake lives with us forever. The unthinkable becomes the I cant quit thinking about it. Grief is Gods mentor. In that appetite for anger, the exploration of truth and the lessons we grab in the storm we find valuable breathe of grace. God said, Blessed are those who mourn. How can that be true? When my son died, I told Him he had made a mistake. When He took my daughter, I knew the time was right, even in my pain. I found that falling apart is usually the best way to get to putting yourself together. I am learning secrets that have given me the ability to not only survive, but thrive. To reckon with ones self is to reckon with eternity. May you be free as you discover the secrets of mourning blessings.

Since She Went Away Book Description :

From David Bell—bestselling author of Somebody I Used to Know and Cemetery Girl—comes a chilling novel of guilt, regret, and a past which refuses to die... Three months earlier, Jenna Barton was supposed to meet her lifelong best friend Celia. But when Jenna arrived late, she found that Celia had disappeared—and hasn’t been seen again. Jenna has blamed herself for her friend’s disappearance every single day since then. The only piece of evidence is a lone diamond earring found where Celia and Jenna were planning to meet, leading the national media to dub Celia “The Diamond Mom.” And even though Jenna has obsessively surfed message boards devoted to missing persons cases, she is no closer to finding any answers—or easing her guilt. But when her son’s new girlfriend—who suddenly arrived in town without a past—disappears, a stricken Jenna begins to unwind the tangled truth behind Celia’s tragedy. And as long-buried secrets finally come to light, she discovers how completely lives can be shattered by a few simple lies. From the Trade Paperback edition.
