“I did it. I killed them”

These were the heart wrenching words spoken from a son to his father.

These were the words that surrounded a nearby community of mine that engulfed the headlines locally as well as nationally. ‘Refuse to Drown’ is a story of hope in spite of devastation surrounding Tim Kreider, his family and the victims. The page-turner, engulfs the reader, as you are taken on Tim’s journey as he tells his story of being a father to a convicted murderer. The pain and the angst as well as the hope and redemption are all facets of this book.

A friend of mine, Shawn Smucker, helped Tim Kreider put together his thoughts and writings in this riveting book. Reading this book has allowed me to see that no matter what situation I face, there is always room for hope.

I am giving away one signed copy of this book. To enter, please leave a comment below. The winner will be announced Wednesday.

For more info on this book you can find a local T.V. station’s interview here as well as the ‘Refuse to Drown’ site here.
