It’s every parent’s nightmare. That knock on the door, opened only to find a police officer on the other side. “Your son has just been killed,” he says. In an instant your world comes crashing down. What do you do?
Sally Walls’ new book, Nightfall to Daybreak, deals with that question on a very personal level. Sally can speak with authority because she has lived through the most difficult circumstances a mother can ever deal with, the death of a child.
Walls’ story is shared in two parts. Nightfall shares a poignant, yet sensitive picture of her son, Davis. Davis, the miracle baby, Davis, the track star, Davis the teen approaching manhood. Each story is woven with love and pain. We must all face loss at some point in our lives and loss is accompanied by pain. Yet, through the stories the author weaves quotes, scripture and statistics that while they do not dismiss the pain of loss, they help provide strength to cope.
The second part of Nightfall to Daybreak is devoted to daybreak. These stories are different. They are filled with encouragement. Encouragement received from others, encouragement received from God. These are still memories, but this time the memories are examples. Examples of how to move forward. They give the reader hope.
Loss is inevitable. Whether it’s a child, parent, or spouse, losing someone is tough. But Sally Walls demonstrates that you can move beyond the grief, the loss, the unrealized dreams. Mourning will and can bring the light of dawn. Sally is a living example. And she has chosen to share that with others, to offer a glimpse of the breaking sun pouring rays of hope into our hearts. I encourage you to read this book.
Maybe you’ve not experienced that knock on the door. Maybe you never will. But you might know someone that has or will. Nightfall to Daybreak is an excellent resource for churches, counselors, and libraries. It will shed rays of light into the darkness of life.
