When thinking about my feelings toward this book, there are several emotions that begin to well up inside of me. First, I would have to say that this book brought forth a lot of depression and I never necessarily got much redemptive joy from it. From the title we can gather that this is supposed to be a story of resurrection, but I never felt like things really came back to life FULLY. I can't honestly say that this was a story that inspired or built my faith. In some ways it sent me into a quiet sadness filled with anything but joy. While the story had heart warming characters full of love and charm, they could not compensate for the utter sense of loss that overpowers you while you are reading and even when you finish. On a positive note, the writer's details and descriptions are exceptional and as far as her style of writing, I liked it very much. Sadly, this is probably not a book I would recommend to anyone. I like to finish a book with some sense of hope and joy, something that makes me look forward to life and this book did not give me that at all.

He takes May to his home and let's her sleep. The next day he gives her a ride home. Claudius is old enough to be her grandfather and doesn't understand the ways of today's young people. But his care and love seem genuine to May and she is grateful for his help.
May leaves for Rwanda where she is going to help a local priest with his ministry to a small village. May falls in love with Father Isaac and the work that he is doing. She also falls in love with the people of the village, as well as starting to understand God in a new way. Unfortunately she is there in when the Hutu's and Tutsi's have their major civil war. May is urged by the UN forces to leave the village, but she chooses to stay. She is the only survivor in the village when everyone is killed by roving bands of para military forces. They leave her for dead, but she isn't.
After spending three months in hiding with no one to help her the civil war ends and the UN comes back and rescues her. May returns to the U.S. with major psychological issues from seeing all her friends slaughtered. She is struggling to integrate back into society. She is struggling to understand God and why He would allow something like this to happen.Read more ›
This book was difficult for me. There's a lot in it about redemption, but there are a lot of dark experiences in the book as well as disappointment which brings up tremendously dark emotions. I sometimes feel like books can emotionally manipulate readers almost *too* much to evoke a response. I can't decide if "Resurrection in May" is one of those books, but it wasn't a happy time.
