How does one recover after learning that a husband of forty-four years has been molesting their granddaughters? Along Came Hell, or So I Thought tells one woman’s story of her family’s journey down that road. Throughout this book we see how conversations, circumstances, Bible studies, TV shows, and Holy Spirit surprises brought about healing over many years. It’s not merely her story, it is God’s story as he guided her from emotionally feeling nothing to recognizing her pain, naming it, and handing it to the Lord. It’s God’s story as he showed her that what she felt she had lost hadn’t been lost at all. It had been repurposed, rebuilt, and used in new ways. He also, in His own surprising ways, challenged her to molt, not bolt. While everyone’s life story is different, this book shows that one thing never changes. God.
