I found this book to be really well written and hard to put down. Emily, the main character, is like so many women I know: strong and independent, but deeply wounded and struggling to allow vulnerability at the same time. It's a touching story that made me think about my own life and my own past and the idea of God as a Father in my life. Plus, I love the ending! I would recommend it to anyone.
Couldn't put it down! Apr 21, 2005
This is a wonderfully written story that really pulls you into the lives of the characters so that you are genuinely concerned about what happens to Emily and her family. Her spiritual and physical battles coincide and it opens your eyes to how the two really connect in our own lives. What a refreshing read in this day when multiple generations of kids are growing up without fathers, but to find that there is someone who loves us no matter what our lives are like here on earth.
