This is the true story of the brutal Texas murder that destroyed a family, restored one man's faith, and shocked a nation... At 3:00 a.m.on March 1st, 2008, Terry Caffey awoke to find his daughter's boyfriend standing in his bedroom with a gun. An instant later the teen opened fire, killing Terry's wife, his two sons and wounding him 12 times, before setting the house ablaze. Terry fell into a deep depression and planned to kill himself, but God intervened. Upon visiting his burned out property, Terry noticed a scorched scrap of paper from one of his wife's books leaning against a tree trunk. The page read, "[God,] I couldn't understand why You would take my family and leave me behind to struggle along without them. And I guess I still don't totally understand that part of it. But I do believe that You're sovereign; You're in control." That page was like a direct message from God, and it turned Terry's life around. Now, one year later, Terry is remarried, the adoptive father of two young sons, and working to rebuild his relationship with his 17-year-old daughter, who is currently serving two life sentences in a Texas state penitentiary for her involvement in the crimes. Author interview included.
