Father Jay Finelli's Recent Book Review of "It Doesn't End Here"!

Check out the following review of It Doesn't End Here by Father Jay Finelli of

"This is the story of one woman's great suffering and her ultimate victory. Tragedy, heartbreak, betrayal, fidelity and faith in God are all weaved together in this true to life story of Dawn Marie Roeder. To see a mother endure the loss of her only son and the surreal circumstances surrounding the event is heart wrenching. Yet, to see her come back with new life, to fight for her son and to fight for others demonstrates the power of God's grace working in Dawn's life. This is a must read for any parent who has lost a child, any person who has suffered tragedy, anyone who likes to see good overcome evil, and those who want to see God's transforming grace active in a person's life. If you don't know how to deal with the tragedy in your life, and need to get rid of the pain, you need to know that "It Doesn't End Here!"
