Reviewer: Cheryl Frerichs (
Rating: 5 Stars

“I would recommend this remarkable book to anyone who enjoys an exceptional book about how God can take and use our past mistakes and turn it into something good. I appreciated how Sheila Raye Charles was transparent and she didn’t hold back in revealing excruciating details about her struggles and her dilemma with her father.”
Reviewer: Andrew Smith (
Rating: 5 Stars

“I hope that this book encourages other people who have no father or who wish they had a more present one to see that things can change with faith. This was a hard book to read but one that needed to be written. If you have an idealistic view of Ray Charles before reading this book, this book will take your view and smash it to pieces.”
Reviewer: Spencer Cummins (
Rating: 4 Stars

“There is salvation that leads to a new path that leads to reconciliation with her own children that will come with time. She has a voice that sings and a voice that wants people to learn from her mistakes and she wants you to know that there is another road to take . So if you think you have gone to far to turn back if you don’t think your not worth the time. Take the time to read this book get it in the hands of someone who needs a life line.”
