The Krystal Promise, Blaine M. and Brenton G. Yorgason, Bookcraft, Salt Lake City, UT, 1981.
If you venture to read this book, make sure you are OK for a good cry. This book is very emotional, as it explores the burning death of a one and a half year old girl, and the reaction of her family, especially that of her mother. The names used in the book are fictional, but the epilogue introduces the real family upon which this story is based. I cannot imagine the pain and the struggle this would be. Also would be the self doubt and the self-questioning--could I have done something different. That is at the cruz of this story. This book is very moving, and it does teach lessons about our dependence on god, and letting God perform his miracles in His time rather than our own.
