This book is an account of the experiences of an ordinary family who find themselves caught up in a living nightmare when the father of young children is arrested and forced to stand trial over serious sexual allegations. It is a cautionary tale of rough justice which warns how the accused in such a case often faces an automatic ‘presumption of guilt’. Yet this is a story of a family who have a firm belief that God is in control: a God who has plans behind all the events of this world. In her sometimes harrowing account, Melanie Metcalfe has much to say about how the family’s faith was tested and strengthened through these events, and is a startling testimony of faith through adversity.
Melanie Metcalfe, not her real name, is a mother of three girls.
