I'm generally a non-fiction reader, but am finding and liking more and more Christian fiction novelists. This book is a thick, but quick read. It is fascinating how she weaves three stories into one. Captivating until the very end. It's not just a story, but one (three) that provide some profound spiritual insight. I'll definitely read more from her.
If anyone has ever struggled with Anxiety or Depression or both, this is a must read. Written by the pastor of Solid Rock Church in Portland, OR, it is refreshingly transparent and real. I value greatly his vulnerability in telling his tale, but greater so, his desire for absolute Truth regarding such an elusive, yet predominate affliction in our culture. So. Good.
I read this book in two days and it only took me that long because I have, you know, responsibilities and a little girl to attend to. :) Captivated from the very beginning, my soul breathes easy now having glimpsed what heaven will look like when the Lord decides to take me home. Just like Colton, the only thing that I'm afraid of is who I may not see when I go.
I love to read, but few books wrap themselves around my heart and soul like this one. Ann has this gift of reaching right into your soul with her words and applying the most amazing kind of Grace. The lens by which I view my world has dramatically shifted because of this book. An absolute must read. It will change your life.
