    3. Wow I have to say that this is the best book I have read of hers I can somewhat relate, in my own way Life is no picnic and doesn t always turn out the way you want Hard times certainly hit us unexpectedly This is her journey of faith through the hard times in her life Faith Trusting in God Strength in between the two gardens of life I would give this ten stars if I could Powerful and will definitely look back to this to get me through.


    4. I loved several things about this book The visual layout of the book The Going to the Well sections at the end of each chapter This section is a recap of what was taught in the chapter There are remember points, Scriptures to read, deep questions, and a prayer The subtitle pages are two pages in length in bold block print Important quotes are set off by themselves in the chapters The chapters at the end of the book Epilogue gives an update on her marriage, an additional one on her h I loved seve [...]


    5. I got this book for Christmas and I had finished reading it by New Year s Eve I couldn t put it down There is no band aid theology here This book takes a very honest but ultimately hopeful look at the reality of suffering and pain in the Christian life.


    6. For anybody who has wondered why God has allowed a certain situation, for anybody who has faced disappointment, or has wondered how their life turned out this way.Lysa writes from a place of knowledge as she is in the trenches fighting a battle she would never have chosen and, yet, encourages the reader to keep fighting the good fight.
