Patti McLead

Author of Tattered, Not Torn

To Speak about and Sign books

Summery of book:

Flags lined the streets as Patti and her family drove to the cemetery. The local shop owners emerged from their offices to watch as they passed by. Children stood on the front lawn, their little hands clinging to the flag their teachers had given them. They were safe. They were going to have a normal day. But Patti wasn't. Patti was going to bury her son. In a heartwarming true story of perseverance and confidence in the Lord, author Patti McLead discusses the tragedies in her life and the overwhelming emotions of losing a son in the military. Life had already dealt her a bad hand—losing both parents to violent deaths and losing a brother to drugs. One person should not be given so many burdens to bear, but life kept going, and so did she. Through faith in Jesus Christ and through the love and care of His people, Patti survived one tragedy after another, eventually surviving the death of her son.
