Mistaken Identity Summary

Mistaken Identity: Two Families, One Survivor, Unwavering Hope by Don Van Ryn

One tragic traffic accident. Five university students killed. One survivor. A shocking case of mistaken identity that thrust two families into a bond of grief and joy beyond imagining. This is the story of two students from Indiana's Taylor University, Lauren Vand Ryn and Whitney Cerak: one buried under the wrong name, one critically injured and in a coma being cared for by the wrong family, and the heart-wrenching discovery five weeks later that they had been mistaken for one another. The Van Ryns and Ceraks now come together, two years later, to recount the amazing drama as it unfolded. Not only do they reveal the inspiring healing journey of survivor Whitney Cerak as she comes to terms with her own identity -- now altered by the injuries she suffered -- but also the recovery of two traumatized families as they describe the bond of faith that sustains and unites them, as they each came to terms with their bizarre reversal of life lost and life found.
