5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down 24 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I started this book thinking it would take me a while to read it, but I read it over two days because I just could not stop reading. Kathleen Treanor's story is very personal; it's not just what you know from the news. And much of the book focuses on her healing process.
She offers hope to anyone who has suffered a tragedy, not just those affected in Oklahoma or New York.
I never realized how much the letters from school children meant to victims of a tragedy.
Kathleen talks about how one day everyone else seems to go back to a normal life, and you can't understand how they possibly could after what has happened. Yet she eventually heals, and her journey is truly inspirational.
This is a wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a "must read!" 22 April 2002
By S Rice - Published on Amazon.com
On April 19, 1995, the lives of the Treanor family were forever changed by the tragic loss of their daughter and parents. The author describes through heart-breaking detail their struggle to survive and eventually triumph over this horrible chapter in their lives. As an Oklahoman, I started the book believing it would speak to all of us who experienced this terrorist act in our own neighborhood. By the time I finished, I realized this book speaks not just to Oklahoma, but to the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healing in the Garden 17 Jun 2013
By J. Engle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderfully written story of Ashley, one of the children who died in the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building. Ashley's mother recounts the tragic loss of, not just her daughter, but Ashley's Grand-parents as well, and the years of effort that went into designing and building the Oklahoma City Memorial, a beautiful tribute to the lives lost there. It's a very poignant story about grief and loss, and building someting out of the ashes, and a simple reminder of the cost of terrorism.

I found this book quite by accident after a visit to the Memorial where I took a photo of one of the chairs. That chair happend to have Ashley's name on it. After searching her name on the internet I discovered this touching book. Well worth the cost of the book, just be sure to have a few kleenex on hand.

This book is very wonderful and inspirational. It tells in full detail about one family's loss on that fateful day in Oklahoma City. It's great for people dealing with a loss or even for people who aren't going through a loss.

5.0 out of 5 stars ashley's garden aftermath of Oklahoma City Bombong 28 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I confess I bought this book with a lot of worry that I would waste both my time and money and was really surprised that I got interested so quickly. I highly recomend this book. It is a wellwritten account of what happened {I live in Oklahoma} It is really a moving book. I actually cried and it takes alot for a book to make me cry. It also made me stop and think about my relationship with god.I'ved read alot of the bombing books and this is one of the best.
