Format: Paperback
This little paperback is essential reading for everybody, not just someone who has been left at the altar. We have all been there, metaphorically at least, and Ms. Kennedy with her wisdom and compassion guides us through her very public dumping to a place of spirituality and God-ness. Ms. Kennedy literally got left at the altar at her wedding rehearsal and heard the awful words, "I just can't do it," from her groom. No whiner, she, but a strong woman who shares her story of rejection and those of others who call upon their inner strength to find hope. Not just wise words but a good read.

from Diane Penn, Palm Springs, CA

Kimberley suffered a shattering blow to her sense of self, as she tells her story in "Left at the Altar."
It left her vulnerable, like going through a dark tunnel.

One of the fascinating parts is just when you think she is almost at the end of that tunnel, she is hit with another blow.

But, she made it through. Courageous journey. I couldn't
put it down. And neither could my husband.

Although I wasn't left standing at the altar, the man who promised to marry me broke up with me for another woman before our wedding date was set. I was devastated! Kimberley's story is such an encouragement to any woman who has been through this heartache. God can heal us if we just draw near to Him, and He can restore the love we lost with something better. Although it is incredibly painful to be abandoned by the man you love, there is hope for a bright future. Have faith! Mary Singer Wick, author of "My Heart's Desire: A Journey Toward Finding Extravagant Love".

This book is not just for women left at the altar but for anyone who has experienced any kind of rejection. Kimberley describe her experience so vividly I felt like I was there.

It is so encouraging to read about another sister in Christ falling in love with the Lord, and I pray this book shows many women the satisfaction of being intimate and romanced by the creator of the universe.

I am in college and it seems everyone around me is either getting engaged or talking about getting engaged and this book puts marriage and finding your mate back into perspective. A great read for college girls!

This book is well-written by a young woman who felt her world collapse when her fiance said, "I can't do it" at the wedding rehearsal. She experienced the natural human emotions but eventually realized her faith in God was the answer. She shares her spiritual journey with other women experiencing rejection of any kind in the hope they, too, will find their way from rejection to fulfilled lives. This book is a MUST READ for any woman who has been rejected for any reason.

I read Left at the Altar by Kimberley Kennedy as part my book club with BookSneeze.

This is a story that tells of one woman's ultimate nightmare. At first its a riveting story and leads into the details of rejection and overcoming rejection in general, not just when you are "Left at the Altar". It was a quick read but I found myself wanting to know more personal details and story fashion. It quickly became a self-help type book, which I didn't expect at all. It was a good book just not what I was expecting at all. I think its a great read for someone who was just rejected in some manner but definitely not one for everyone.

*** 3 STARS***

A great oneliner I got from the book itself: "God's timing is almost never our timing, but its always perfect."

Think about that.

Format: Paperback
An easy to read book that focuses on moving on after rejection. The author shares her faith journey through the entire experience and beyond. Her point of view helps women see that good can come out of evil and that a woman's self-worth is not dependent on a man, but on a relationship with her Creator. I intend to purchase a copy for everyone of my girlfriends and my new mantra will be, "man's rejection, God's protection."

Kimberly, I'm so sorry you had to live through this horrible experience but I'm really blessed that you took the time to write this book for the rest of us who have also lived through rejection.
