Emotionally exhausting

This book has to be one of the best books I have read. Reynolds writes in such a way that you identify with the characters and in their own way they become a part of who you are. Amazingly well written, this book is a must read for all women and mothers. Anyone who has ...
This book has to be one of the best books I have read. Reynolds writes in such a way that you identify with the characters and in their own way they become a part of who you are. Amazingly well written, this book is a must read for all women and mothers. Anyone who has ever loved anything can surely identify with the love and loss that Ninah expiriences.

Oprah's Brand of Christianity on Display

I would not expect a Christian story worthy of the Oprah Club's endorsement to be less than negative toward the faith. But what I did not expect was the disgusting and heretical treatment on display by Ms. Reynolds on page 72 - the last page of this tome I could bear to...
I would not expect a Christian story worthy of the Oprah Club's endorsement to be less than negative toward the faith. But what I did not expect was the disgusting and heretical treatment on display by Ms. Reynolds on page 72 - the last page of this tome I could bear to read:

That night I dreamed of Jesus on the cross, on a cross in the field behind the church....I dreamed I went outside in just my gown and walked up to him. He was too nearly dead to speak, but all he had in his eyes was love for me. And I walked up to the wound in his side where he'd been stuck with a sword. I put my mouth on that wound and began drinking from it, swallowing his blood. And then the wound his his side became a mouth, kissing me back, and I could slip my tongue into the wound, feel the inside of his skin with my tongue, circle it there tasting him.

    Astouding

    The Rapture of Cannan is an interesting account of religous legalism. Although shocking, a person who is aware of denominational extremes can fully appreciate the reality of this novel. It is clear the writer did her homework. The story line was unpredictable, however the ending left me a bit dry.

    Ok, but not great

    I enjoyed reading this book, however the grandfather view of life deeply bothered me throughtout the book.

    It was o.k.

    In my opinion this book started out really good, but the ending I didn't like. I won't say anything else so as to not give it away. It is a good book for something to read, but it didn't really get in my heart like a book should.
