Barrel of Books and Games Presents: Unbroken, The Dorothy Lewis Story

Book Signing - Mount Dora welcomes Author Frank Stanfield and Dorothy Lewis to present Unbroken, The Dorothy Lewis Story

Barrel of Books and Games, January 19th at 1pm:  Frank Stanfield has covered thousands of criminal cases for more than 30 years as a newspaper editor and reporter, including "The Orlando Sentinel" and the "Leesburg Daily Commercial." This horrific event took place in 1993 in Eustis, FL. 

"Unbroken is both a memoir and a crime story that contrasts the wildly dysfunctional lives of two young assailants with one woman's healing faith. It helps answer the question posed by Job in the Bible: Why do good people suffer? 

Dorothy Lewis sat in the back seat trying to comfort her young daughters while one of the carjackers cursed and shooed for them to be quiet. As she began to pray, one of the attackers sneered: "This ain't Jesus doing this, this is Satan doing this."  

The two teens lived up to the billing. Dorothy was raped, shot in the head three times and left for dead and the children murdered in a crime so senseless the killers couldn't even explain it.  

Dorothy, who was a young widow, once told her sister, "If anything  happens to the girls you might as well lock me up." Instead, she embarked on a long, remarkable recovery. She had only one question for God: "Why was I spared? The answer is the thing that has kept her "Unbroken." Today, she offers hope and comfort to anyone facing the tragedy, or what seems like a hopeless situation, in the telling of this inspirational story.  

Frank will be signing copies of his book, Unbroken: The Dorothy Lewis Story from 1pm - 3pm.
