Although Simeon is mentioned only briefly in the scriptures, he is a shining example of faith and patience. Promised through the Holy Ghost that he would not die before the long-awaited Messiah, Simeon apparently spent much of his life watching for fulfillment of that promise. Surely there must have been times of doubt, moments when it seemed foolish to cling to such a hope, but his faith was at last rewarded when he was shown the infant Jesus in the temple and recognized him as the Savior of the world. In The Simeon Solution, Anne Osborn Poelman describes how she, like Simeon, learned to trust in the Lord and have patient faith in the ultimate fulfillment of his promises. When she was a medical student at Stanford University she discovered The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, finding in it the spiritual fullness for which she had been searching since childhood. She joined the Church and went on to become an internationally known expert in her medical specialty. At age thirty-eight she married Elder Ronald E. Poelman, a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy. In this book she shares many personal experiences that have demonstrated the workings of the Simeon solution in her own life.

I think this book would appeal to more of a Latter-day Saint audience. However, if someone was doing some study about the Church, this book could certainly give them an honest look at what it is like to be a new member. Anne O. Poelman has lived a fascinating life and it's a joy to see things from her perspective.
I tend to follow authors. If Anne Osborn Poelman were to write any other books (other than her professional technical books) I would certainly purchase them.
