Overview

In 2005, Rachel Devenish Ford, 25-year-old pregnant mother of two, moved with her husband to the woods of Northern California and began her blog, Journey Mama. In writing about her life-all the funny things, the sad things, and the beautiful- she found a way to see it again for the first time, and a way to cultivate joy in a life that had been overwhelming to her. In the process, she encouraged and inspired people around the world.

The first in a series, Trees Tall as Mountains is a collection of the best posts of the first three years of Journey Mama. In them, Rachel Devenish Ford describes life in an intentional community, her love for her Superstar Husband, her dysfunctional relationship with large grocery stores, and the antics of her young children. As Rachel works to overcome sometimes crushing anxiety, love the people around her, and grow in her faith in God, she writes about it all with tenderness and humor. Funny and profound, Trees Tall as Mountains is a life-changing book.

It appears that most of the contents of Ms. Ford's books can be found on her blog, Journey Mama. Unfortunately, upon going to her blog to check out her writing style, I found that her latest blog post was one soliciting donations to pay for a trip home to visit family. I do not know all the circumstances that led her to move all around the world, but I would hope that somebody wishing to partake on such an endeavor would at least have the foresight to plan for how to get back home without relying on the kindness and the wallets of others. I was instantly turned off, and will not read any of her books as a result.

I have to admit this was during a busy time for our family, but I just couldn't get into it. I sure under other circumstances, I could have enjoyed it

I loved this book! Her honesty and wonderful passages brought me peace. I am now buying the other two books so that I can continue with the journey that is hers, yet so similar to mine.

The introduction is endless, then there is a prolog, then the story starts and it seems endless. I do not like books where the main character uses first person and talks to the reader. This frustrates me to no end. It is impossible for a reader to get lost in this type of writting. This is book one of a series. It is about a depressed woman's blog and another reviewer is right, it can be found almost word for word on the net. Which is where a blog can be found of course, I looked this blog up. Why publish a book when the whole world can read it online? I do not what genre this book would be unless it is autobiographic. For adults. I can not imagine anyone 18 and younger taking an interest in this book. I am an adult and I sure did not like it. AD
