I think DiAnn Mills is a wonderful Christian author anyhow, but Footsteps really touched my heart deeply. Missing children has to be one of the most difficult situations any parent has to deal. It is the kind of thing that when seeing a story about it on tv or the internet you just want to gather your family and especially your children close to you and never let them out of your sight less the same thing touch one of them. I think it would be difficult to deal with just a situation without God, I don't know how one does it without God. DiAnn tells the story of Debra and her missing children. It is told in a very realistic way. Debra's path is in no way smooth. There are many bumps in her road as she searches for her children. I don't want to say much about the story to spoil it for those who have not read it. But I will say that at a certain point in her struggles she gives them over to God, and although she does not them simply find her children, she does learn to live with her...
Footsteps is another great novel from DiAnn Mills. When a mother's two children are abducted she frantically searches for them, but they are gone. The police and FBI join the hunt for the children and she learns that it was her husband who took them, but where did he take them?
When her husband turns up dead in Mexico the trail goes cold and she fears she will never find her children. Birthdays and Christmases come and go. Will she ever find them? Are they alive? Against all hope she continues to believe that they are alive, but will she ever find them.
Footsteps is awesome and it really gets you into the head of a mother who has lost her children. From despair to drowning your sorrows, to the joy that comes from any lead that brings you a step closer to finding your children this is one wild ride.
There are really no words to describe how this book has affected me. As a mother of three children, I agonized deeply over the complete anguish Debra experienced when her children and husband vanished without a trace. Debra was not a Christian, although her best friend Jill was. But in the time after the abduction, Debra learned about God and let Him take full control of her life and the lives of the children she so desperately loved and missed. Debra went through so much trauma in learning about her husband's deceits that she had a very deeply-rooted fear and distrust of men. Dr Cale Thurston never once pushed Debra beyond anything she might run from. Gradually, with God's help and leading, Debra allowed Cale to help in searching for her children. What struck me most in reading this book was the deep anguish that Debra allowed God to take and use to make her strong in her faith in God. Seldom do I every read a Christian novel that touches me as deeply as this one. God came first in...
