"As in the Bible itself, there are plenty of flawed people here.
Sometimes, Brown lovingly shows, God doesn't clean up the messes of
life. Sometimes he calms the storm, but sometimes he just calms his
child."--Billie Rae Bates, Foreword Reviews, Winter 2016
"When I received the advance reader's copy, I gobbled it up, reading it far too fast while not wanting the experience to end. I loved reading about Mara's trip to London--her description of a Tube ride is spot on--and the other women's support of each other through their various struggles. The way the author conveys the transforming nature of their spiritual growth is brilliant and compelling."--Amy Boucher Pye, Woman Alive, February 2016
