Letter from Alabama: The Inspiring True Story of Strangers Who Saved a Child and Changed a Family Forever
by David L. Workman
David’s life could turn out very, very badly. His mother dies suddenly when he is an infant. Then at age two, he is gone. Vanished, with his father, and abandoned in a far-away place.
His future hangs on a Letter from Alabama, a piece of paper that must travel hundreds of miles in an envelope. Then it must land in exactly the right place in a busy office where nobody is under any obligation to read it or pay any attention to it. This is the true story of that letter, and all that will transpire because of it.
It’s the story of human failure, and human triumph. Forgiveness and redemption. It is a testament to, and a prayer of thanks for, good and decent people everywhere who stand up for a child when they don’t have to—when they have nothing to gain and perhaps much to lose.
It’s a tribute to those who see the potential in a young person and give that person a chance to be the best that he or she can be. They are the heroes for whom this story is now committed to writing.
“I loved this book! I am not a big fan of biographies and autobiographies and when I received this in the post, I will be honest I was not expecting much. I began reading it to learn a little more about American history but as soon as I turned the first page, I was hooked. I completely finished reading it in one sitting. This book is emotional, motivational and educational . . . . 5/5 stars. Must read.” – Goodreads reviewer Luke Saunders, July 9, 2015
