Now You See Me, How I Forgave the Unforgivable
  Written by Kathy Sanders
  Hardcover, 288 Pages
  April 2014, $23

On April 19, 1995, Kathy Sanders' life was changed forever when a bomb exploded and destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City, killing her two grandsons Chase and Colton.

For months, Kathy struggled with coping and wondered if the God she'd worshipped all her life even existed. After battling bitterness and contemplating suicide, she turned to the Lord and asked what He'd have her do. The answer was clear: Forgive your enemies.

Thus Kathy forged a friendship with Terry Nichols, one of the men convicted in the bombing, via phone conversations, letters, and even face-to-face meetings.

She also began searching for answers about what happened that fateful day in April and found opportunities to cultivate relationships with Nichols' children, mother, sister, wife, and ex-wife in separate turns. She demonstrated the same type of warmth to family members of Timothy McVeigh, the second man convicted of orchestrating the bombing. Her courageous efforts of extending compassion and grace gave her peace and removed the bitterness from her life.

With photos, interviews, and actual letters exchanged between Kathy and Terry Nichols, NOW YOU SEE ME tells the story of one woman who walked the road less traveled and forgave the unforgivable.

Kathy Sanders quickly became the face for the media of the Oklahoma City Bombing because she was one of the first to arrive on the scene. As a painter, she uses art to capture life's important moments and touch people's lives. Kathy and her husband Tom reside in Little Rock, Arkansas. Between them they have six children and thirteen grandchildren.

My Thoughts
I don't know if I could forgive anyone who was involved with the death of a family member or friend.  How the author did this amazes me.  Once I started this book, I couldn't stop reading.  It was interesting and enlightening at the same time.  I Rated This Book:  3.5/5 Stars.
