I had no idea what a profound effect this book would have on me when I started to read it. Immediately I was riveted by Jeanne’s harrowing story. I’ve never know anyone close to me who was murdered. Her struggles are many: how to come to grips with who the killer is, how to move on from this event, and what changes will come from it all. She is a highly intelligent woman and educates herself to be the best at defending the helpless. The book takes you on a journey and you suddenly realize that while on this trip you will come face to face with your own values. The depth, the angst, and the yearning to discover her destiny after her sister’s murder pulls you in and you must find out, too. Her acquaintances influence and support her as she ponders what she feels she must do. I believe I had a change of heart after following her steps toward peace and forgiveness. Yes, I did, which really surprised me. Read this story and see if you agree with her change of heart. You won’t regret it.
I highly recommend Change of Heart: Justice, Mercy and Making Peace with My Sister’s Killer by Jeanne Bishop.
I received an e-copy of this book from Net Galley and have given my honest review.
