My Emily - Free Book

Thanks to a blogging friend, I just found out that the book My Emily is available for free download through Amazon until (or perhaps through) tomorrow! This is the kindle version of the book, but Amazon offers a Kindle Application for you to read Kindle books on your computer so we can all take advantage of the offer. I haven't read this book yet, but I'm willing to take the risk in ordering it to download seeing that it's at no cost. Many thanks to Sharkbytes for sharing this!

Here's the description from Amazon:
This book tells the story of a hurting family, an amazing little girl and a mysteriously faithful God. 
Emily wasn't born perfect - so one might think.  
She was born with Down Syndrome and many would jump to the conclusion that she would have very little hope for a life with any significance. Two years later came the diagnosis of leukemia. What little hope remaining turned to no hope whatsoever - or so one might think. 
The life of this little girl, with all its perceived imperfections, had great meaning. Her loving nature and courage touched the hearts of everyone she met. She also taught them how to value their own lives - even with their many "imperfections."
Note: A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will help families with special needs children, those who are battling pediatric cancers, as well as parents grieving the loss of a little one.
