Summary "On April 19, 1995, Kathy Sanders' life was forever changed when a bomb exploded and destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City, killing her two grandsons Chase and Colton. For a while after her grandchildren died, Kathy struggled with coping and wondered if the God she'd worshipped all her life even existed. After struggling through bitterness and contemplating suicide, she turned to the Lord and asked what He'd have her do. She was reminded that the scriptures say that we are to forgive our enemies. Kathy then forged a relationship with Terry Nichols, a man who murdered her grandchildren. Additionally she housed, clothed and cooked for Nichols' children, mother, sister, wife and ex-wife. What's more, she demonstrated the same type of warmth to family members of Timothy McVeigh, the second man convicted of orchestrating the bombing. With photos, interviews, and actual letters exchanged between Kathy and Terry Nichols, NOW YOU SEE ME will tell the story of how she forgave these men, cultivated relationships with their families and how her courageous efforts of forgiveness gave her peace and removed the bitterness from her life"-- Provided by publisher.
