I just finished reading this amazing book. You've got to read it!



http://www.amazon.com/Mistaken-Identity-Families-Survivor-Unwavering/dp/1416567356/ref=pd_bbs_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1219851290&sr=8-2

From Amazon.com:

Meet Laura Van Ryn and Whitney Cerak: one buried under the wrong name, one in a coma and being cared for by the wrong family. This shocking case of mistaken identity stunned the country and made national news. Would it destroy a family? Shatter their faith? Push two families into bitterness, resentment, and guilt?
Read this unprecedented story of two traumatized families who describe their ordeal and explore the bond sustaining and uniting them as they deal with their bizarre reversal of life lost and life found. And join Whitney Cerak, the sole surviving
student, as she comes to terms with her new identity, forever altered, yet
on the brink of new beginnings. Mistaken Identity weaves a complex tale
of honesty, vulnerability, loss, hope, faith, and love in the face of one of
the strangest twists of circumstances imaginable.

I wonder if there is any chance I could check this out at my local library? If so, I think I'll go get it tomorrow. Another friend of mine suggested it too and I know I would love it. Plus when I have a good book to read....I LOVE to get on the ellipitcal machine so I can read! I tell myself that the ONLY way I'm allowed to read is if I'm on the elliptical....it works out very well! :o) (as long as I obey myself! ha ha )

Oh, you will not regret it if you read this book! The families involved are such good, strong Christians. It made me want to be like them. To be able to live through that and still say without a doubt that "God is good."
Well, of course he is but that girl's family was saying that mere moments after hearing news of this wreck. Oh, it just makes me want to know them. And glad I know Him!
