MOORE — In her efforts to provide help to others, author Dawn Layne shares her experiences in the pages of her new book, “The Bittersweet Promise.”
A normal Sunday in the Layne family ended in one’s worst nightmare. Layne’s two daughters headed off to be a part of Billy Graham’s Youth service, and on their way home, a semi-truck, which sent them head on into a van across the interstate, intentionally hit them. One daughter, Laura was left fighting for her life; the oldest daughter, Alicia, died at the scene.
In the pages of “The Bitter Sweet Promise,” see how her faith in Christ carried her through the darkest moments, as well as gave her the strength to live beyond the brokenness.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
