In each chapter, Toni shares her innermost agony as she realizes she will not be able to bring a precious life into this world. Then Toni’s life goes from bad to worse when she turns to drinking, drugs, and taking risks with her life to end her pain--until God shows her the way to a better life.
But First, You Must Forgive, is a raw and twisty page-turner that breaks through the stigma and silence that prevents people from forgiving. It offers insight into what it means to survive, to rise above, to heal, and finally, to forgive.
