Publisher's Summary

Sandi Patty, the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music, saw her stellar career go into a tailspin. Now she tells the story of her long road to restoration. From the agony of divorce nearly 10 years ago, Sandi has moved from center stage to the back row of the church balcony and back into the spotlight. This book is the heart-touching narrative of her years as an acclaimed recording artist balancing her role as adoring mother of four children, her fall from public acclaim, and the steps she worked through with her church and pastor to find forgiveness and peace...all under the harsh glare of national media attention.

    "Touching"

    I'm not a fan of Sandy Patti, although I was familiar with her music in her heyday in the 80s, and her successes, along with her missteps. However, this book may leave a lasting impression on me, as it successfully humanizes the struggle that she went through, while not discounting the sin itself. She shows how, even in her mistake, that God was able to raise up fruit from the ashes. It's a perfect book for someone who is struggling because of divorce.

    "Broken on the back row"

    I have never read a modern story that God has used so beautifully and effectively to demonstrate his redemptive love and power. I praise God for the Pastor who allowed himself to be used by God to draw in a broken soul and Ms. Patti who allowed her story to be publicized and bring a message of hope to those of us who need God's forgiveness in our lives.
