On April 19, 1995, Kathy Sanders' life was changed forever when a bomb exploded and destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City, killing her two grandsons Chase and Colton. For months, Kathy struggled with coping and wondered if the God she'd worshipped all her life even existed. After battling bitterness and contemplating suicide, she turned to the Lord and asked what He'd have her do. The answer was clear: Forgive your enemies. Thus Kathy forged a friendship with Terry Nichols, one of the men convicted in the bombing, via phone conversations, letters, and even face-to-face meetings. She also began searching for answers about what happened that fateful day in April and found opportunities to cultivate relationships with Nichols' children, mother, sister, wife, and ex-wife in separate turns. She demonstrated the same type of warmth to family members of Timothy McVeigh, the second man convicted of orchestrating the bombing. Her courageous efforts of extending compassion and grace gave her peace and removed the bitterness from her life. With photos, interviews, and actual letters exchanged between Kathy and Terry Nichols, NOW YOU SEE ME tells the story of one woman who walked the road less traveled and forgave the unforgivable.… (mer)

This is a very timely read since it is now the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Murrah building in Oklahoma. The author of this book is the grandmother of Colton and Chase who died in the nursery. So sad to think that if these children had lived they would be young adults now.

After the devastation of the bombing Kathy sets out to make sense of the tragedy by learning everything she can about the events leading up to bombing. She is particularly obsessed with finding out who the person/ people Timothy McVeigh were seen with in the days leading up to the event. These mystery people don't seem to concern the government as they seem willing to close the case with the apprehension of McVeigh and Nichols. Kathy launches her own investigation by tracing the bombers steps and speaking to the people who knew them best, their families. Along the was Kathy shines a light on anti government and Aryan hate groups that I had no idea exsisted in this day and age and in this country. To think that there is a group of people purporting to be Christians while dressing up as Nazi's is truly chilling. Many times Kathy put herself in dangerous and uncomfortable situations to get to the truth. Sadly, Terry Nichols, the one person who could tell her what she needs to know, has so far managed to skirt the issue. I do hope for her sake that Terry Nichols finally comes clean with everything that Kathy wants to know. Even if that day doesn't come it seems that she has been able to fing peace. Through her Christian faith she has been able to forgive and even befriend the murder of her grandchildren. Her faith is encouraging to read about.

Since the Oklahom bombing the country has endures 9/11, the Sandy Hook shooting, and the Boston bombers just to name a few tragedies. There will always be senseless violence against innocent people and Kathy's words show how Christian faith can lead to healing. If you are a Christian then there are a lot of moments in this book that will resonant and even if you aren't it is still an inspiring story. ( )
