About the Book
When young widow and life coach, Dr. Teresa Lopez Gonzalez, travels to Puerto Rico to coach Pilar Sanchez, 13-year-old granddaughter of Teresa’s mother’s best childhood friend, Teresa comes face to face with her own unwillingness to surrender to the Lord’s will for her life. In the process, she learns that only by losing her life will she truly find it.
Dr. Teresa Lopez Gonzalez screamed, stumbled, and stifled a sob with her fist.
“No! It’s not true!” She gasped for air as the tragic news sucked the life out of her. “You’re talking about the wrong person. It can’t be my husband. Roberto is at work.”
Trembling, she grabbed the edge of the kitchen counter to keep from falling.
This couldn’t be happening to her. Surely it was all a dream. A bad dream. She would awaken soon to discover all was well.
The police officer lowered his head then lifted it again. Compassion filled his glistening eyes. “Ma’am. I’m sorry. So very sorry.” He reached into his belt pouch. “We found this in your husband’s shirt pocket.”
Teresa’s stomach clenched.
