This is an interesting book. I’m not quite sure how to describe it. It’s deep, somewhat melancholy, introspective, poetic, artistic, slightly romantic, reflective, sobering yet hopeful. The book deals with some very difficult issues – divorce, cancer, death, and substance abuse – but the author very carefully handles these issues from a biblical perspective and shows how these circumstances have affected the faith of the people involves.
Pair it with a comfy blanket and warm cup of tea and you have a perfect rainy day read.
I must mention that I received a complimentary review copy of this book from Bethany House, but that in no way influenced my opinion of it.
