The Waiting

You may, or may not, know that I am a Mom to 4 kids almost 9 and under. They keep me busy. So to tell ya'll that I read this book in two days, that means something. It means that I really, really liked it!

I really loved The Choice, the first book in this series, and the second book in the series was even better. It was full of twists and turns that I didn't see coming. These characters were so wonderfully real that they had me in tears by the end of Chapter 3. I loved the theme in this book that all the events in our lives, everything that happens in our lives, makes us who we are. I think that is so true. Our experiences are given to us by God and we need to look back at them to make us who God is calling us to be.
I really love reading about the Amish way of life and loved reading about their communion. I've been digging deep over the last week into communion in my own church and in that of all Christians and now have one more group to really study how they do communion - the Amish. God has something more to teach me, this I know.
I hope that if you enjoy a good fiction book, you will go out and get The Waiting. It is a very well written story, filled with lovable characters that you won't want to stop reading about. But, don't say I didn't warn ya if you can't put it down!!!
