Overview

In this inspiring book and extraordinary journalist tells the story of her spiritual coming-of-age, speaking with candor of the pain and triumph at the core of the female religious experience. Married young and unknowingly to an underworld figure, Lynne Bundesen fled with the children and began a journey that would take her to war-torn Cambodia, China, Israel, and Europe, as well as deep within her own heart and soul. It also chronicles her search for meaning and wholeness and her unexpected discovery of the inspiration and power she found through the women of the Bible.

Editorial Reviews

Mary Deeley
Is it possible to find God even in terrible situations? Bundesen writes a fine memoir relating her struggle to do just that. Using the Bible as pastor and teacher, she explores familiar and not-so-familiar stories that touch on women's lives in general and on hers in particular. The chapters are divided into anecdotal episodes from her life, which allows readers to take in as much or as little as they want at a sitting. At significant places, Bundesen uses quotations from the Bible to enhance what she is saying and to show how relevant this book has become to her daily living. While this is one woman's journey, many women and men will find comfort, pain, humor, and conviction accompanying them on their own journeys. The accessibility of her writing makes this book recommended for everyone.
