Today, I'm honored to be over at author Anna Weaver's website, sharing a little bit about "Not Alone". The interview includes a giveaway -- please come on over and enter to win a copy!
Here's a little snippet of the interview Anna conducted with me about the book - in this paragraph, I have a chance to explain the book's crazy-long subtitle! :)
The book I'm featuring today is "Not Alone: A Literary Companion For Those Confronted with Miscarriage and Infertility".
I know that's a mouthful of a subtitle! But we wanted readers to know what they were picking up.
"Literary" because it's a book of essays. So very many people have shared this kind of suffering and so we wanted to feature a multitude of perspectives.
"Companion" because the longing for a child -- either one you've lost or one you've never had -- can be a very lonely kind of suffering. We wanted people to know this book was full of people who had been there too, who want to walk beside you in your grief.
And "Confronted" because this isn't something you ask for. It's something that comes upon you when you never wanted it and weren't looking for it.
This is a book that doesn't pretend that these things are easy, but also confirms that God is good. And those two truths: that there is real sorrow and a good God who loves us ... those can be hard to reconcile. The contributors to "Not Alone" were really honest about *both*, and I think it's that honesty that makes the book so valuable.
Please head on over to Anna's place to read the rest!
Peace of Christ to you,
