    Thirteen-year-old Stacy is sunbathing in the backyard when she hears a strange noise from inside the house. Turning to look, she sees a man with a gun burst through the door; then everything goes black. She wakes up in a hospital bed to learn that she has spent the last four years in a catatonic state. Suddenly 17, she finds herself struggling to adjust and fighting to remember what happened to her. She is the only witness to the shooting that injured her and killed her mother. Her memory is hazy, but slowly more details of that awful day come back. She knows that it was someone familiar to her, but she can’t quite see his face yet.

    This book is well written for its time for a younger audience. We listened to it as a family and found it entertaining and looked forward to continuing.

    Story

    Like the biblical Job, John Ramsey had it all - wealth, social position, a loving family. And like Job, Ramsey was destined for great affliction, as many of the most precious things in his life were cruelly taken from him.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Other Side of Suffering to be better than the print version?

    It is awesome to hear the actual author tell the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Other Side of Suffering?

    The first 1/3 at least is heartbreaking.


    Which character – as performed by John Ramsey – was your favorite?

    John Ramsey is great but I relate to his late wife. I loved the line about people paying to see excess in the Christmas decorating. Yes, she was confident and correct in giving them what they paid to see.
