When the Worst Happens

Can a young woman running from tragedy and her marriage find peace?

Annah considers her young marriage ideal until, days before his deployment ends, an IED leaves her Marine husband, Rey, severely injured and disfigured. Terrified to lose the life she bargained for, Annah abandons Rey . . . and her faith. As Annah struggles to reclaim meaning in her life through travel, work, and rebound relationships, she sinks deeper into guilt and shame.

In a selfless expression of his love, Rey encourages Annah to continue their correspondence. These poignant letters reflect her search for the meaning of life, a growing understanding of the sacrifices of love, and the humility of realizing her need to accept forgiveness.

Will Annah find the love that was always reaching out to her? Will she rediscover the truth of the faith she abandoned?

    Sealed and Delivered is much more than a mere novel; it’s a captivating delivery vehicle for ancient wisdom applied to contemporary life. In so many ways, only Rosalind Ziccardi could have written this book. Her three-plus decades as a military spouse equip her to divulge the ravages of war from the front row. Her training as a theologian and hands-on experience as a minister converge to tell the story as only one who has “heard it all” could do. And her skill as a maestro of metaphor makes it all but impossible to put down. Readers will have no choice but to be gripped by its central theme: “Life is the chisel God uses to release our true self.” Read this book, and let the chisel do its work.

    In the face of choices, tragedies, anguish, and distractions, so common in our search for love and acceptance, Rosalind Ziccardi weaves a story of unconditional love through the medium of letters that unites our everyday life to our relationships with others towards the Divine. A triumph of the human will and living within the tensions of this earthly life.

    Sealed and Delivered is a powerful story of Annah’s learning what real love is. When Rey, Annah’s husband, returns from war his physical appearance is altered but his soul is very alive. Annah makes a decision to leave the man she loves. She shares her inmost thoughts, struggles, desires, and brokenness in poignant love letters. Rey’s unselfish love and wisdom helps her deepen in her understanding of God and human relationships. Rey becomes an “agent” of God’s peace to her.

    This is a riveting story which leads the reader in the mystery of unconditional love in the face of betrayal, sin, transformation, and ultimately, redemption. I was reminded of two sayings of Julian of Norwich: “The good God does not want us to despair of our sins since he can use our sinfulness for our good, and finally, “All will be well. All manner of things will be well.”
