From platinum-selling singer Mark Schultz comes a novel inspired by his award-winning hit song "Letters from Home," about a mother's unwavering hope and steadfast prayers for her son to return from war.
When Beth Thompson's only son, James, goes missing in action in Afghanistan, she is left with her prayers, hopes, fears...and letters.
Mother and son have been writing since boot camp. James writes of his struggle to become a confident soldier and of his concern for his young wife and their unborn child. Beth, like any mom, praises her son's courage even as she frets for his safety.
Even after James disappears, Beth is comforted by a daily ritual of writing him about her feelings, faith, and attempts to maintain a normal life when nothing is really normal but the waiting.
Based on platinum-selling singer Mark Schultz's hit song "Letters from War," this emotionally powerful and timely story reveals how faith sustains in even the darkest of circumstances.
Being a songwriter is like having a special license to explore the world and take your audience along on the journey. Some writers prefer to look no further than their own experiences, plumbing the depths of their souls for songs. Some intently observe the parade of life swirling around them and capture stories from other peoples lives. Singer/songwriter Mark Schultz is equally skilled at both approaches. Its a gift he demonstrates yet again on his latest Word Records collection Broken and Beautiful.
I feel I know what Im supposed to do in lifewrite songs, perform and communicate, says Schultz, who in just six years has become one of the industrys most successful songwriters, penning such poignant hits as Hes My Son, Remember Me and Letters from War, which was selected as the centerpiece of the U.S. Armys 2004 Be SafeMake It Home campaign. Schultz hit, Back in His Arms Again was named BMIs Christian Song of the Year in 2003. I Am the Way was cited as the Christian Song of the Year by American Songwriter magazine in 2001.
