Song in the Night by Pamela Thorson

As a young Christian, Kevin Thorson was a normal, healthy 19-year-old. Music was his life, and he planned to play his guitar and use his talents for God. Abruptly, all seemed to end July 11, 1997.
His mother recalls the words from that dreaded phone call: Pam, you need to sit down . . . Kevin has been in an accident . . . paralyzed . . . ventilator . . . hospital . . . She could only comprehend the bits in between those horrifying words. Kevin was lying paralyzed on a ventilator in a foreign country with a broken neck.
Pam Thorson, with painful openness, recounts the true story of her family's nightmare as they struggled to live out their faith in the face of impossible odds. Song of the Night traces the journey of her family to find peace in the midst of so much darkness.

About the Author

I kept waiting for the happy ending to arrive . . . but I finally took the advice of a dear friend: Write the pain. So Pam Thorson finally writes about her teenage son's tragic accident. From those first agonizing days to the surprising interventions of God that brought Kevin back from the brink of death, he earned the nicknameMiracle in the Making.
Song in the Night is a story of their long suffering and God's tender grace; it is a story of assurance that the family is moving upward and onward. Pam insists that it is not about us. It is about our God . . . Who delights at the sound of His beloved children singing especially during that long, cold night before the dawn.

My Review:

I wanted to read Song in the Night so bad. So Pamela sent it to me.  This book is good.  I started reading it and I couldn't put it down I just had to see what was going on.   I shed many tears.  Pamela wrote the book and you can feel her pain as she tells the story of her family's nightmares as they struggle to live out their lives with their Faith.  Kevin was fighting the impossible to stay alive. A very long journey to find the light in the darkness.
This is a great book for all to read. A true story about a family who put their full Faith in God. Pamela wrote this book from her heart. This is a very inspiring  book. Thanks so much for sharing your story.

Pamela sent me a extra book to giveaway. Hardback book and she was so nice to sign it.
