In FIRSTBORN (3), Erika, her husband Steven and their teenage son have a blessed life until one day a letter arrives for Erika. Slowly, her life begins to unravel. Steven is concerned and wonders what's in the envelope. When she finally tells him the truth, it's more than he can bear and he forgets all he's learned since becoming a Christian. Robin Lee Hatcher pens an intense story with flashbacks guaranteed to make you cry. Erika is an incredible character who faces her past head on. Very true-to-life with a strong message.
