Tragedy carries the power to destroy individual lives and even entire families. This is often more likely when the media sensationalizes a person's downfall. One day, Ralaine Fagone was the proud mother of an exceptional young man. The next, she was hounded by reporters and photographers bent on capturing the most horrific and painful moments of her life. At the age of twenty-one, her son James became entwined in a plot o great evil and was later tried for the murder of Timothy Schuster. Broadcast networks dramatized the events that changed her family forever, and Ralaine turned down many interview requests in order to use that time to sort out what had actually happened. She made up her mind that if she ever chose to speak, she would tell her experiences, her journey, her story. Burden of Promise first tells of a heavenly message given to Ralaine at the birth of her son James. In the wake of James' trial, she pondered the terrible possibility that God's promise - a promise that her son was the beginning of a new legacy - would remain unfulfilled. Shaken further by the judge's sentence of life in prison without parole, she feared James' hope-filled future was at an end forever. Or was it? Burden of Promise takes you past the startling stories - still in reruns - from Dateline NBC, Snapped, Sins and Secrets, Deadly Women, among others to Ralaine's struggle with the weight of this divine promise and how she found true peace in the midst of tragedy. Burden of Promise is written to inspire parents who are left with the broken dreams for their children's lives.
