"Where Was God on the Worst Day of My Life" is the story of a father who simultaneously received the most painful and beautiful news of his life on New Years Day, 2015. The retelling of the news that answers the question the book title poses is crafted sparsely. But, as the river depth hides under the surface, so the substance of this story hides in its simplicity. The flow of words and space around the photography of Mark Nagel provides room for readers to sit and listen for answers themselves. Of course, not all answers are equally true. Some, through mystery and beauty rise above the others. Like the rivers rushing to the sea, the true voices all rush to the one voice. Ultimately this is a story about the one voice. Once you've heard it, you will never be the same.
