Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good read. I enjoyed the book, but I am an agnostic so I found her focus on God and the bible somewhat tiresome. Other than that she does share her own wisdom well. I have read her fiction books and value her as an author and her words are still wise and worth reading even if you're not religious.

As I read her book, Kidd became a companion. I love having her walk with me on my journey.
