Inga's triumph over the loss of both her legs and the use of her arm is inspiring at the highest levels. Her constant decisions to press forward and her refusal to give up and the faith behind her strength translates into hope for all of us no matter what we are facing. Inga approached every issue and agony with the fierce resolve to believe in her future and in her God.
In the midst of her accomplishments, there is also a stern warning, God is longsuffering but as she writes, His silence does not mean approval.
This is a book well worth reading and I highly recommend it.
However, this is also a story of a young girl that faces a difficult emotional challenge, i.e., falling in love with a married man, her decisions and their aftermaths. I would recommend this book to anyone in the “early stages” of falling in love with a married person and/or those contemplating an affair. The story of Inga’s affair with Michael is written in a very “raw/honest” way and in that sense it comes across very authentic. But it is also very biased in that the reader hears only one side. Inga’s thoughts about her affair, her justifications, its break-down, and its agony are very well documented. I will say that reading about her suffering after the break-up and the anger she felt towards Michael for his “betrayal” made me realize that we as humans, feel our pain SO much stronger. The fact that Inga was “betraying” Michael’s wife during the duration of this affair is lost in the initial stages of her own grief and agony. Yes, she knows what she did was wrong and yes, she feels terrible for Michael’s wife, but, her own pain and outrage take center stage. Only later in the book, after years of “silent” suffering does Inga see and write more clearly about Michael’s wife. Lastly, this part of the story makes one realize that “what’s Right is Right” and “what’s Wrong is Wrong” regardless of our particular spinning of the facts. I pass no judgment on Inga, just share my own observations. We, human beings, are weak and are susceptible to paint our lives with a large allowance for our own follies, justifications, and delusions.
Lastly, the description of Inga’s basic functioning with her physical limitations will make the reader appreciate what we often take for granted. Also, it will open the readers eyes to the plight of those who rely on a wheelchair to get around and see “their” perspective on this challenge.
On the negative side, this book is very long and it truly takes “perseverance” to get through it. A lot of Inga’s inspirational “advise” is repeated over and over and over again. Also, some of the grammar and sentence structure is not edited in proper English.
Overall, I would say it is a good book to read and I would recommend it.
I couldn't think that a person can still have a positive outlook after surviving all this. Yet in the end, it was so uplifting to see Inga finding peace and have such a big impact on people around her. There is only one source that can give a person such strength and motivation.
This is a Christian book about how God can carry us through so many adversities. Yet, if you’re not a Christian, please consider reading it anyway. It’s not a typical Christian story. Inga’s brutal honesty about her personal struggles is going to touch your heart regardless of your faith.
