There Is a Balm in Huntsville




Two teenagers are killed in a tragic vehicular homicide one night in Texas. Should the 19-year-old drunk driver plead guilty? If so, how long a prison sentence would await him? This nonfiction narrative follows his painful journey, as well as those of his victims' families. Is it possible for victims of violent crime to confront criminals face-to-face? Eventually, the young prisoner becomes involved in some of the first victim-offender dialogues in the country and discovers restorative justice. This true story, both sobering and hopeful, will touch teenagers, teachers, parents, counselors, and professionals in the field. There is a Balm in Huntsville gives hope to all who are confronted by misfortune.
