Something had to happen. I couldn't go on like this way. I felt like my presence here was causing most of the trouble. Well, I could sure fix that!
That was the last straw. I had heard "Get Out!" the last time. My heart was breaking, but it wasn't the first time, and I knew, if I stayed, it wouldn't be the last. I loved Rudy, but if I made him that unhappy I would give him his freedom, and this company that I was beginning to despise. I loved it in the beginning. I enjoyed helping him run it, but not anymore. Someone had taken all the joy and love out of our life, and I was afraid it could never be put back

No one is exempt from experiencing the loss of a loved one in this life; when it occurs, one is never fully prepared for the aftermath. A story of survival and acceptance, My Trail of Tears: A Message of Hope Unveiled examines author Katherine S. Hamrick's journey of widowhood for which no amount of education or life experience could fully prepare her.

At just thirty-two-years of age, her husband, Brian Hamrick, died suddenly after a brief illness, leaving Katherine with two boys ages one and four. In this inspirational memoir, she narrates her story as she navigates her new roles as both a single parent and a widow, dealing with the reality of losing her spouse with no warning.

With photos included, My Trail of Tears depicts the hand of God at work during her time of grief and explains how God brought about the acceptance of her loss, using this time to draw nearer to Him and bless her in the process. Katherine shares her journey to show how a person can move on from experiencing tragedy to eventually being able to bring God glory again. In her detailed account of the behind-the-scenes part of her life, she shows how Christ works all things for His good purpose and how He healed her broken heart.
