But something even deeper was troubling me, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. It was that Mother's Knot in the gut that appears from time to time. It began with a knock at the door. There stood a very serious looking young police officer with something to say. Were my neighbors OK? Was there a suspect on the loose? What could it be? Are you Mrs. Coleman? he asked. Yes, my heart was racing. Your son's been in an accident. His words did a slow motion replay in my ears. I felt sick, dizzy. Time stopped. I couldn't breathe. I had just talked to Brandon two hours ago, and he was fine! A Mother's Knot is the story of a mother's love, pain, and life on the other side of tragedy. With honesty and grace, Gail Coleman shares her personal account of an accident that would leave her only son paralyzed. I threw away all religion...and ritualistic ideals... and discovered God ...has a purpose way beyond what we can comprehend.
