About The Book
Churches throughout the world offer little comfort to grieving

shelter where she was about to receive a life-ending injection and how
Emily's timing saved her from that terrible fate. From there the Watsons
continue with the anecdotes of Sarah's companionship and how she etched
her way into George's heart, a heart that was once off limits to any
