All The Pretty Things book review

I have followed Edie's blog {Life in Grace} for many years.  I was very excited when she announced she would be writing a book.  It ended up taking much longer for her to write the book than she anticipated.  (I think she did a total of three re-writes)  I cannot imagine the struggle she went through with the words on these pages.  She is definitely an inspiration to anyone on a spiritual journey of their own.  Whether you are a new believer, a non-believer, or a believer since the day you were born, her words will resonate with you.

After being raised by a single mother and an alcoholic father (who was in and out of her life), she was determined to rise above her past.  Her hard work and determination paid off for her when she "mad doctor" like her daddy always said she would.  Her choices caused pain and worry for herself and her children.  Then when her home burned down, there was God with a whole new lesson for her to learn.  (I have vivid memories of my grandparents home burning down in the '80s...this is something I will never forget)  Her book is one to read again and again, then let a good friend borrow it (as long as she promises to give it back)

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my review.  Opinions are mine.
