All the Pretty Things *****
by Edie Wadsworth
Overview: This is a stirring memoir about a woman who overcame a rough childhood and found hope and healing in Jesus.
Positive elements: well-written and honest
Negative elements: a really pervasively sad story
Conclusion: Even though this is a well-written book, I just couldn't read it all the way through. It was page after page of heartbreak. I read about half-way through and then read the end. Edie Wadsworth sure has an amazing story to tell, and she tells in beautifully. I think you just have to be in the right place to make this painful journey with her.
