Anne Lemont is one honest author that is for sure. The entire time I was reading this book, I felt like my head was on a swivel. Almost like I was looking at an imaginary audience in the room with me asking them “Did she really just say that?” and ”Did she really just do that?”. By Chapter 4 I wasn’t sure I was going to finish the book, but something kept pulling me forward. By the final chapter I was glad I heard her story. I think it was her statements about Grace that were scattered like jewels throughout the story of her life.
For me, it is a good discipline to listen to what others have to say that think completely differently from me, and be still enough and non reactive enough to learn something from them. In the end it was beautiful seeing the ribbon of God’s grace woven throughout her life as she stumbles along with deep and earnest sincerity at following Jesus. She does not hide her brokenness. Her honesty about her brokenness creates a wonderful backdrop to showcase the gift available to all of us….grace.
*Warning – if language or extreme liberal, feminine views are highly offensive to you…don’t read this book. On the other hand, if you are able to admire beauty found in brokenness, this book is for you.
