Inhaltsangabe: David?s life could turn out very, very badly. His mother dies suddenly when he is an infant. Then at age two, he is gone. Vanished, with his father, and abandoned in a far-away place. His future hangs on a Letter from Alabama, a piece of paper that must travel hundreds of miles in an envelope. Then it must land in exactly the right place in a busy office where nobody is under any obligation to read it or pay any attention to it. This is the true story of that letter, and all that will transpire because of it. It?s the story of human failure, and human triumph. Forgiveness and redemption. It is a testament to, and a prayer of thanks for, good and decent people everywhere who stand up for a child when they don?t have to?when they have nothing to gain and perhaps much to lose. It?s a tribute to those who see the potential in a young person and give that person a chance to be the best that he or she can be. They are the heroes for whom this story is now committed to writing.
Vom Autor: An interviewer asked me what the central message of Letter from Alabama is. It comes down to four words: Every Child Absolutely Matters. This story could have turned out very differently -- very, very badly. It didn't -- because of grace and a family's love, and because of strangers who chose to make a difference. We all have the opportunity to help a child be the best that she or he can be. Letter from Alabama is a testimony to what can happen when people choose to do that. ~ David Workman
