Publisher's Summary

When Alissa Parker lost her daughter Emilie in the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting, she started a life-changing journey to answer soul-searching questions about faith, hope, and healing. As she sought for the peace and comfort that could help mend her broken heart, she learned, step by step, how to open her heart to God's grace and will.

One step brought her face to face with the shooter's father, where in a pivotal and poignant meeting, she was given an opportunity to forgive. Another step brought her into the sheltering compassion of her community as family, friends, and even strangers reached out to buoy her up with their shared faith. And several miraculous manifestations of Emilie's continued presence and influence lifted her heart and will validate the faith of every Christian.

The story of Alissa and Emilie reminds us that the bonds of love continue beyond this life and that despite tragedy and heartache, we can find strength in our family and our faith.

    "Heartbreaking and Uplifting "
    Any additional comments?

    This story is heart wrenching but so uplifting at the sametime. It was a good reminder that we are not alone, that people want to love and help carry you when you are broken.

    Story
    "Must read"

    Listening to this book has changed me. I have teenage daughters that I am going to have listen to this as well. Alissa and her family have inspired me to be more faithful, to serve more and most importantly to love more. You can't describe the feelings you have listening to this. You just have to hear every word for yourself. Beyond touching.

    "An emotional peace"

    I loved this story! I couldn't stop reading. Alissa's voice is very soothing. The emotion and love overflows! I felt like I also healed from similar personal circumstances that I've faced. I believe death is hard but losing a loved one to murder is harder. Thank you for sharing your journey!

    Story
    "deeply touches your heart"
    If you could sum up An Unseen Angel in three words, what would they be?

    This family's story is incredible. I couldn't put it down and I couldn't dry my eyes for more than a moment. I was in awe of their courage, strength and most of all faith....faith in each other, their family and their spirituality (no matter what religion you reference). I am so grateful that Alissa was inspired to share her deeply personal journey with the world.
