Davis did not believe in God. She attended church as a child, but she and her husband, Lon, could not reconcile the hard-line teachings of their youth with their personal beliefs as adults. They had a strong marriage of 10 years, a healthy 4-year-old son, Graham, and a beautiful 9-month-old baby girl, Remy. One morning they found Remy in her crib having a seizure. The days and weeks following were filled with tests leading to one conclusion: Remy would have to have brain surgery. Why? Heather raged against the world. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, Heather and Lon received support from the local church they attended sporadically and the young pastor who helped them reconsider their views of the church. Davis' powerful stream-of-consciousness style plummets the reader to the depths of her despair and lifts them to the heights of her rapture. As the subtitle states, this is the true story of a mother who finds faith during her daughter's darkest hour, but it is so much more. Melanie Duncan
