Jacqueline von Zwehl writes a true story about her life. It's not a biography because the author chose to write about her relationship with God. In this book we say her losing her faith and gaining it back. Her journey is not easy but she makes it through. In the beginning I was confused because there was a mention or two about Allah but the author seemed to be and is a Christian.
I am not sure if I believe 100% her story because I lost faith and she seemed so devoted to God. You have to believe in miracles to read this. The story on how she met her husband was sweet and I wish them to grow old together. I wonder what happened to Chris's first daughter because not much information was given. The first half was difficult for me to read. The author had depression and she was alone and then a revelation about her friend came and things got bad
Did the book made me wanna pray or star believe in God? No. It made me though see that some people still believe in God and pray not because someone they love is in danger but because they want to. In every page the author was praying or thinking of God which was weird for me. The point of this book is that God is always there for you. You just have to let Him in.
