As I told Lynnette when I saw her recently, the first time I picked this book up at a friend’s house, I skimmed the beginning of it, but didn’t make it past the few references to country living. Not being much into goats and chickens myself, I didn’t make a point to get a copy for myself. However, when she contacted me to ask if I would consider reviewing it for her, I agreed. I took it on our family trip during Thanksgiving, thinking it would provide some good reading for the bulk of the trip. I was wrong. Instead of lasting for the whole trip, as soon as I picked it up to start reading one night, I couldn’t put it down, so it only lasted one night! Guess she’ll have to keep writing more books! 🙂
With that lengthy intro out of the way…He Heard Hannah is an incredible story of God at work in two different families through unique experiences that eventually led to them crossing paths. Their first encounter centered on the traumatic occasion of the death of the Kraft’s daughter, Anna, and Courtney Becker’s role as the 9-1-1 operator who took the call. The book beautifully weaves together both stories, and documents so many remarkable parallels that readers can’t help but see the Sovereignty of a loving God constantly in motion orchestrating the details of our lives for our good and to accomplish His eternal purposes.
