"I'm Not Ready to Make Nice"

Jantsen’s Gift by Pam Cope & Aimee Molloy Ends 11/16/2009

Jantsen’s Gift
A True Story of Grief, Rescue, and Grace
By Pam Cope, Aimee Molloy
Hardcover Book 24.99 USA/27.99 Canada
320 Pages

The book is about a mom (Pam) who loses her 15 year old son suddenly and unexpectedly.  It follows her though her grief, going through deep depression, and healing.  This also introduces you to her supportive family and the love her husband has for her.

The book takes you to Vietnam and describes the poor conditions and the children’s need for help.  This moving story tells of how they moved their grief to “Touch A Life” the foundation her and her husband have created to help desperate children in countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, and Ghana.jantsensgift

The story of Pam Cope and her family is full of grief and recovery.  It is an inspiration to anyone to change the way they think and to make a difference in the world.  Our society is so focused on keeping up with the Jone’s and trying to be the best at everything that we rarely stop to smell the Roses.

I had a hard time putting this book down.  I had an even harder time getting through the grief and the feelings of depression that Pam went through with dry eyes.  I can’t imagine the grief her and her family went through.  Her family’s first brave trip to Vietnam and the start of the healing process.

This book should become a required read for older middle school, and high school students. It would help show how much parents truly love their children, as well as helping them to see how fortunate they are to live in the United States of America.

I cannot encourage you enough to read this book.  Joining a reading group?  Here is a great wealth of knowledge and information to help prepare you, Jantsen’s Gift Reading Group Guide.  Jantsen’s Gift is due for release 11/10/2009 and  you can check The Hachette Group.

  1. I’m not entering, but I just wanted to say that I’ve read this and cried through a lot of it. To whomever wins it, they are in for a treat of tragedy and triumph.

  4. I don’t want to join a reading group, but I would love to read the book. I lost a son several years ago and belong to a group called Compassionate Friends. This would be a great book to pass among our group.

  5. No reading group but I would love to read this book. The world, indeed, seems to focus too much on keeping up with the Jones’. Please, let us give of ourselves to who we can and Love as the Lord does.
