About the Author
Diana Greenwood grew up with the Bobbsey Twins, Laura Ingalls, Huck and Tom, the Hardy Boys, Jo, Francie Nolan, and Oliver Twist. She tried to duplicate the adventures of her favorite characters by writing poems, stories, and scripts for summer performances in her backyard. Today, she still has those childhood editions on her bookshelf and spends her days writing stories of young people embarking on life-changing journeys. Diana makes her home in the Napa Valley, where she watches college football, volunteers at her church, and continues to devour books.

One of my favorite lines from the book relate to Elvira's learning about a God she'd never really known or understood before.
But then it occurred to me he meant you could believe in God anywhere, not just in some stuffy old church. You could pray and read the Bible in the middle of a campground and it was all a fine thing to do. God apparently didn't mind where you were as long as you believed.
And another very wise Elvirism:
There's only one God. But people see God the way they want to.
Family secrets, loss, strained relationships all wrapped up with a small glimmer of hope.
Insight was a breath of fresh air. I was sucked into this novel within the first few pages. Diana Greenwood did an excellent job with the character development. I especially loved being inside the head of Elvira. She was such an interesting character, there were moments where I couldn't help but laugh at some of the thoughts that ran through her mind while other times my heart just ached for her.
Jessie was another favorite of mine. For such a small child she showed more thoughtfulness and wisdom than anyone else in her family.
Insight was an all around well written novel. Full of tense drama, emotional struggles and a family's journey to grow, heal and love.
