GRACE WILL LEAD US HOME The Charleston Church Massacre and the Hard, Inspiring Journey to Forgiveness

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Karen Chilton, Jennifer Berry Hawes [Intro.]

History • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This audiobook achieves an exceptional performance of an important work on a difficult subject—mass murder and its aftermath. Karen Chilton seamlessly moves from rendering narrative of the horrific Charleston Church massacre to a chilling delivery of killer Dylann Roof’s monotone. Her skill with Southern accents makes the people involved with this event come alive. She strikingly emulates the emotions of the survivors and the victims' loved ones, and her performances of the speeches of Governor Nikki Haley and President Obama strike just the right notes. The author, a local journalist, meticulously reports the tragic murders of nine African-Americans who were gunned down during a Bible study meeting and honors the survivors who find the grace to forgive the unrepentant killer.
