The girl on the front cover is an afterthought. Are you one too? As a small child Gabby lived on a farm. She went to school, worked in the gardens and cared for the animals. The year she turned fourteen her life changed. The death of her father brought darkness into her world. She became an afterthought. She was lost. After being told she wasn't smart enough to accomplish anything, Gabby began her journey to find answers. The God she had learned about, where was he? Why would this happen? Studying religion, philosophy, metaphysics and psychiatry while working with terminally ill children and in mental hospitals. Searching to find the answers to why. Why she was an afterthought, someone forgotten about, only to be remembered from time to time. Where, or will, she find the answers.
