I LOVE BOOKS and so when I first signed up to review books for Booksneeze, excited at the oppurtunity to receive free books, I looked through the available titles and chose this one to read first...but when it arrived and I began to read it I realized it was a mistake. Probably by my own fault this book was not the novel I was expecting but rather the real life story of Kimberley Kennedy. I decided to read it anyways but I had a difficult time being captivated by her story and found myself not wanting to continue, knowing that I had to. Just recently I picked the book up again to complete it and found it easier to read this time. I found that this book includes information that though it may not be Kennedy's original ideas, is stil helpful; things such tools for dealing with grief and pain of relationships (but could be related to other life experiences) and how God will help you through that. I also like that she included a few men's perspective about ending relationships and not just a woman's point of view. Overall this book isn't my favorite, but it did redeem itself from my original opinion of it.
To be honest... At first I thought that this was going to be just another sob story about a jilted bride... I was totally mistaken. Left at the Altar was an uplifting guidebook for repairing our spiritual relationship with god. Now let me say, I am not by any means a "religious" person but, this book had a tone and calmness that actually helped me in my own life and made me feel a little less lonely in the end.
Kimberley Kennedy takes her real life experience and pens the novel, Left At The Alter. A story of Hope and Healing for every woman who has felt the Heartbreak of rejection. Kimberly has what every woman seeks. A wonderful career, A wonderful man, A good family and Friends. She is now only one day from saying "I Do' to the man she is going to call her 'husband' and spend the rest of their lives together. Everyone is gathered at the church for dress rehersal when her finance sister walks into the church and calls for everyone attention. Kimberly is in the pastor study with the pastor and her finance as he tells her, "I can't do this'. Kimberly is devastated!! Back at her apartment family and friend try consoling her. Because Kimberly is a well known anchor woman in Atlanta, the news is going to hit the airwaves like jumping jacks. How will she deal with this all? Kimberly candidly details that day. She even has her sister detail exactly what was going on in the church right up to the point everyone in attendance was told that the wedding was postponed. Kimberly book begins with a heartbreak wedding rejection but her book provides rejection from love in relationships and marriages. She complements her story with other women who have been rejected and how they also over came the PAIN. Kimberly states that her first anger was toward God not her finance. She felt God should of protected her from this heartbreak. She guides readers through examining motives, thoughts and feelings. The book is not only about her point of view and other women but therapist and counselors and a chapter from the perspective of men who have rejected women. All the advice that Kimberly gives she sums it up to one thing: having a relationship with God. Even though she thought she was a Christian, it was through that awful scar of rejection that she encountered that helped her understand God's unconditional love and mercy. She pens her testimony of overcoming the pain, guilt, and emotional feelings that plagues her body when rejection leaped aboard so that others will be able to identify, understand and know that life is not ending and hope is at the door, just walk in the steps she has already placed guidance and you too can experience victory over rejection. This is a wonderful easy paperback read. Make a great reference too. you will find yourself making notes through out the book. Its painful yet joyful, its overcoming and thought provoking. Indeed share a copy.
