Life is complicated. It's full of twists and turns. We never see around the bend. Joys turns to sorrows. Sorrows turn to joys. Life is hard.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
So what do we do about it? Do we try to hide? Sometimes. Do we face it? Not if we can help it. But in the end, the problems in our lives must be faced. And once they are, we often wonder why we made ourselves suffer so long.
White Picket Fences by Susan Meissner is a book about people. People with joys. People with sorrows. Little fires that smolder into bigger fires. Heroism. Fear. All the complicated emotions and thoughts that make humanity what it is.
A wonderful story that searches through the layers of its characters, there is one fault to be found. Where is God in all this? Not until the end of the book do these people cry out to God for help, although they would call themselves Christians. And even then, very little praise is given to the God who is the solution of all our problems.
