Customer Book Reviews

“I haven’t experienced loss as the author has but he opened my eyes to what others experience. Heart-warming stories of his loved ones (friends and family) the highs and the lows. I laughed and I cried but overall I learned that we serve a big God and we cannot understand his ways but we can walk thru them and as David said sometimes we are carried through them. This book held my interest from the first words.”Cathy

"[An] excellent read for anyone who has suffered loss and wants to know and experience ways to deal with their sorrow. The author shows a personal perspective that shares highs and lows, using his deep faith and compassion for others and to challenge him to be okay. It is an inspiration to anyone who reads it.”Connie

"Purpose in the Darkness is the most inspiring book I've read in years. I saw so much of myself in David J Fry's accurate and descriptive responses to loss through over 50 years in losses of family and friends. David's book, helps me understand myself better and why I too, turn mourning into positive service to others and my community . David's book also shows me how the Lord is always with us. How He lifts us up daily and sometimes carries us. Even if you don't need "Purpose in the Darkness" at this time, you will use it in the future. I carry my copy in my car. I've marked many stories in the book that might be beneficial in the future. Thank you David, for finally writing and sharing this book and your experiences that's been on your heart for years.”Mary
