A Moving Read,
This review is from: Marked for Life: Choosing Hope and Discovering Purpose After Earth-Shattering Tragedy (Paperback)
Though not my normal type of read, I found this book to be both interesting and moving. Simply and clearly written, it expresses the author's spiritual journey without the heavy-handedness common when trying to express change that, by definition, mostly happens internally and does not easily lend itself to explanation. More than once while reading it, I was brought to tears, but the overall impression is of hope and passion for life. The author is courageously open about the less flattering phases of her journey and talks about her faith without being cloying. For anyone who has wondered how the students at Columbine dealt with their survival, this is an intimate picture of one person's answer, which also offers a unique perspective on how we all deal with tragedy, no matter how great or small the degree. Whether you are conventionally religious or not, this book will make you think and feel, and reading it will leave you, in some way, changed for having shared the author's experience.
