Shannyn shared her heart and let us see how Jesus worked in her life. She exposed the heart aches and pain of loss. She let the reader know not only what was happening but what her thoughts were and how change happened not overnight but gradually.
My favorite parts of the book were when Shannyn helped us understand her new language - "Christianese". I thought that made it easier to understand no matter if you follow Jesus everyday or have never heard of Him before. So grab your box of tissues and start reading Shannyn Caldwell's "The Healing Season". You will be glad you did!
This was an absolutely amazing book.
One of the difficulties about writing a memoir like this is that so many authors are afraid to tell the truth and shy away from the reasons they needed healing in the first place, or they dwell so long on those reasons that you feel it is all a bit salacious.
I read a similar-genre book recently and was gravely disappointed because the author said she had needed healing, but didn't really show us why. It is difficult to get into the story when half the story isn't told.
Shannyn Caldwell struck a perfect balance, drawing me into the fullness of her life pre-healing and explaining the baby steps made along the way, the slip ups, the tiny victories -before the magnificent conclusion.
This is a story of Christian salvation, which also factored into my reluctance to dive into her book before it was in my hands. Many books featuring Christianity are frankly syrupy and irritating, not sharing the stories of the difficulty every Christian faces, but talking only of the sublimity of life in Christ. All well and good, if one is a saint- but even St Theresa once said to God, "If this is how you treat your friends, no wonder you have so few!" Following Christ is not an easy choice, and it is a choice one has to make every moment, in every decision.
Shannyn's life had cracks in it before the tornado that killed her parents ever touched down. The tornado smashed what was left, and she deftly shows that but for the saving love of Christ, the pieces would never be healed together.
As I sat at Phoenix Sky Harbor, gate A25, tears streaming down my face, I knew that this book is rare in the realm of spirituality, and a must-read for anyone seeking healing for a life too crushed to be made whole alone.
The only reason I am not giving it a full five stars are a few typos and tiny editing issues not uncommon with self publishing.
