One Light Still Shines {Book Review}


One Light Still Shines
By Marie Monville

About the book:
“My story is not about my past, but about your future,” says Marie Roberts Monville. 
In the startling tragedy of the Amish schoolhouse shooting at Nickel Mines, one story has never been told; Marie Roberts Monville, the wife of the man who created such horror, tells her story for the very first time. It is a story of sorrow and destruction, but also one of majestic deliverance, unending compassion, breathtaking forgiveness, and grace-filled redemption. 
Within a solitary moment, Marie Monville realized that life, as she knew it, was over. What she never anticipated was a tangible encounter with God reaching into her circumstances, through them rewriting all she believed about herself, her faith, and the God she thought she knew. One Light Still Shines reveals three love stories: the innocent love of a devoted wife for a husband in pain, the incomprehensible love of God in the aftermath of massacre and destruction, and the redemptive love of Christ, waiting to unfold in the life of every person who reads this book. 
Marie's journey since that darkest of days has been invaded with light which shines through these pages into the darkest questions we all face--questions about our past, our value, our identity, and own powerlessness in this fallen world. Come face to face with the Power behind every answer---a love that begs to be received.
If I could sum up this book in one word it would be AMAZ-WOW-RIFFIC!  Y'all, I could not put this book down once I started it.  And when I wasn't reading it, I couldn't wait until I finished my chores so I could get straight back to reading it.

This beautifully written and heart-wrenching memoir will leave no reader untouched. What an amazing testimony Marie has. Marie was the wife of Charlie Roberts, the man who committed a brutal massacre at an Amish schoolhouse. With one phone call, in a matter of minutes, Marie's life changed forever. Charlie was dead and so were at least three little Amish girls, and the others gravely wounded.

Marie revealed her heart through her book and shared her struggles as she began to pick up the pieces and move on after the tragedy. She reflected on God's love surrounding her and the support of her family and friends as each day passed.


This story will absolutely touch your heart and will be one you won't soon forget. This is an amazing read, I highly recommend it!
