Encouraging! Nov 29, 2005
This is one of the most encouraging books I've ever read! It imparted to me a lot of strength to press on, no matter what. In fact--for those who said the book depressed them--the book helped bring me out of depression, for I could see so clearly the hand of God weaving all things together not just for Elizabeth's sake, but so He would be magnified and others would be drawn to Him. I loved the ending! I have a dear Christian aunt who has swam in the waters of adversity for years, having lost a husband and daughter to alcoholism, as well as burying a precious grandchild in infancy, and yet her trust in God has remained, though like Elizabeth she has questioned. A few years ago we surprised her with an 80th birthday celebration at her church and it sounded so much like Elizabeth's. My aunt didn't know why on earth all those cars were at church and why they were just "stopping by." So this book was a double blessing to me, reminding me of the faithfulness of our God and reminding me of a sweet witness He has given to me in my aunt.
Outstanding! Mar 21, 2005
This book was an Outstanding read. I would recommend this book to everyone, and have. My husband even loved it! If you are looking for a heartwarming book that catches you up in the story and won't let go then this is it. I laughed, cried, laughed, and cried somemore. I don't agree with those who give this book only 1 or 3 stars, they miss the whole point. It is not depressing at all. Things don't always go the way we want in life, but that is real life and we deal with it. I felt the end tied the book all together well, the point of the story wasn't a feel good ending, it was that following Christ can be hard and have sacrifices, but it is for His Glory and not our own. God takes care of us and brings us through the fire. THIS IS A MUST READ!!!!!!! DON'T TAKE ANYONE ELSES OPINION, READ IT AND MAKE YOUR OWN.
Moving! May 7, 2004
Shame on anyone who walked away from this book unchanged! I found myself crying and laughing out loud. It made me and still makes me press on toward the goal of the upward call in Christ Jesus! Every christian woman with prodigal children and tragedy should read this book. The point (which obviously some of the readers giving it less than 4 stars missed) is that even if you must walk with Jesus seemingly alone for what ever reason, you must continue to walk with Him trusting Him and clinging to Him. Our reward is not here its in Heaven. My grandfather died (when i was 4) before he saw anyone in his family saved and 19 years later the first (me) was saved. Imagine if he would have thrown in the towel. His motto and mine is "Though None Go With Me Yet I WILL Follow". Thank you Mr. Jenkins for writing this heartfelt life changing (for me anyway) novel!
Pure Agony Nov 19, 2003
I agree with the women who gave this book 1 and 3 stars. It was indeed depressing and torturous. I kept reading until the end because I thought that surely Mr. Jenkins would have some sort of redeeming message for a woman who prayed most of her life and trusted God implicitly but never seemed to get any answers to her prayers! How could her life have possibly been a testimony to those around her? Yes, we have trials in this life but is there no victory? For all of her prayers and love and sacrifice she was returned with tragedy and sorrow--time after time after ridiculous time! It was almost a joke! I got to the point where I was surprised when Mr. Jenkins had even one glimmer of a good thing happen to the main character. I felt certain that her granddaughter (the only good thing left in her life) was going to get murdered or something of that tragic nature. I have no idea why those she ministered to all her life ever got saved!! It's not that I think we have to live a life of comfort with no adversity or sorrow---I understand the message of the Bible. But whatever mark Mr. Jenkins was trying to hit---he totally missed it as far as I'm concerned. I shed no tears over this one. Read Francine River's books if you want to have hard hitting Christian fiction. Start with the Mark of the Lion series. That's Christian fiction at its best!! You will be changed and the message will stay with you for a very long time...
What??? All This Happened to ONE Person??? Sep 8, 2002
Elizabeth Grace LeRoy Bishop's life hasn't exactly been a walk through the park. Starting out life with only one parent, she learns as a teenager (on the same night she commits her life to Christ) that her father is dying of cancer. She is left only with a bitter, greedy aunt, but she still hopes that she can find some joy and fulfillment in her life. Soon enough, it seems that that will happen, since at church camp, Elizabeth meets handsome, kind, Christian, and too-good-to-be-true Ben Phillips. Tragedy mars that relationship as well, when Elizabeth learns on her senior high gradution day that Ben is missing in action as he fought in WW1. And her life continues in this fashion, until it seems that some sort of catastrophe has happened to everyone that Elizabeth cares about.
[...] In conclusion-this is a book that I think tries to make a valuable about being a faithful Christian no matter what, but it makes the point in a way that's a little TOO extreme.
