Out of each event, the author draws comfort and re-affirmation of the power of Almighty God. And manages to do so in a chatty voice, overflowing with love. You find yourself led into another world of strong faith and unshakable trust that in the end, no matter what happens, things will turn all right. The closing paragraphs tell it all, when the author writes: "I know that faith and love and joy are the keys to unlock the miracles God has already put in place for us. So I'm determined to be full of all three of them. It's my job." Indeed, Marsha Roberts has made it her job to be full of faith, love and joy and we, her readers (at least I am speaking for myself) are thankful to her for doing so and being the person she is. She concludes: "I can't see through the fog, but God can and that's good enough for me". That's a very powerful image...
On another level, I was fascinated by the so very American "can do" approach displayed in this book: nothing ever seems to get Ms. Roberts down and if she does go down on her knees, it's to pray, not to bend over. That's not part of her vocabulary nor even a possibility! She even managed to overcome the pain of getting her home foreclosed, losing it and having to relocate in record time - a devastating drama for most people. Remarkable dynamism and optimism, so very American and no doubt one of the reasons why the US is now slowly coming out of the 2008 Big Recession while Europe is still deep in it.
Growing up during this period myself made many of the events she described ring true with me. It was a trip down memory lane for this baby boomer, and I am sure for many others.
I would caution against reading this somewhere that you feel uncomfortable tearing up or becoming emotional, because this book is a very honest, emotion-filled journey. Happiness, sadness. Laughter & crying. She will let you deep into her life, her soul, in a way I've never read before. And if you let her, she will comfort your soul with her life story and the knowledge that there are still wonderful people out there who seek only love and joy.
I wholeheartedly reccomend this book, and with a life as big as hers I wouldn't be surprised at all if she writes another volume or two sometime. She certainly has had such an adventurous life, I would be shocked if she didn't have more stories with a message to share with us. And I'll be the first in line to buy it. Treat yourself to this one, ladies and gentlemen, I promise it's worth your time and money.
