At least, I say they wove the story together well, but that’s not true… GOD wove the story together well, they just wrote down what happened – with compelling writing.
This book could be a book about tragedy – and it’s certainly a book where a family who have suffered great loss have overcome that loss through their faith in Jesus Christ and the strength He gave them along the way.
This book could also be a book about how God saves and how he can pull people back from the edge, starting with something as small as a misheard name – as Courtney testifies.
This book though is something else.
He Heard Hannah is a great mix of BOTH of those stories and is, in many ways, two books in one but it’s so much more than that because it shows us just a small glimpse of how God is working every day and how he works through our situations to do so much more than we could ever imagine.
We don’t get to see most days how our lives, our walks affect others and how God uses us to bring people to him and to heal hurts, fix things that are broken and lift up the downhearted.
Through the tragic loss of their daughter, Lynnette Kraft and her family got to see just how God uses even the ‘bad’ things in our lives to bring healing to others.
Little Anna was only alive for six years or so, but her life MEANT something. It changed Lynnette and her family for good and it also changed Courtney and his family for good… and through this book it will change others for good too.
I want my life (and death) to be used by God to change lives the way Anna’s did.
I am happy to recommend you read He Heard Hannah – I’m sure you’ll be blessed by it!
- The book is well written
- It has a positive, uplifting ending
- I didn’t realize that the book was going to be telling two separate stories and intertwining them. When Courtney started telling his story, I was a little confused about what was going on. That’s more my fault than the authors’ but it could be made a little clearer what is happening the first time they switch story lines.
- There is great sadness and tragedy within the pages. While Lynnette Kraft does a great job in showing the positives that came from that, many readers will find it heart-wrenching as they read it. This is not a true ‘con’ because it’s not really a negative thing but some people simply don’t want to read heart-wrenching stories which will make them want to hug their children tight. Be warned – it can be harrowing at times… but it’s worth it!
He Heard Hannah by Lynnette Kraft and Courtney Becker can be a difficult read at times, in terms of emotional distress, but it skillfully tells a wonderful story of healing which I doubt anyone would dislike. It was definitely a ‘I can’t put this down’ kind of book but at the same time, there were times when it felt almost personal and I didn’t want to go on.
Finishing it is worth the ride though… I don’t think you’ll regret it at all!
