Aimee (Getting Your Read On)
This is a quick read because it's a very short book. I polished it off in one sitting. It was a book with very real emotion and will probably hit home for many people as it deals with cancer, chemo treatments and coming to terms with life and death through the Lord's help. This is the story of so many people. I have a hard time with books like this just because they are real life and it's what we all live every day. I guess I prefer to be taken away from the hard things of real life when I read. ...more

First of all, this book is very short. At first this book is very depressing, but the more I read, it became very spiritual and left me with a good feeling. I would recommend this book to someone who has a terminal illness or is very sick.
Within these pages are several nuggets of inspirational truths especially helpful when you're finding it difficult to understand suffering.
This was an okay little book. Found the ebook for free on amazon, so thought I'd give it a read. Has a good message, hits close to home after having lost an aunt to cancer a month ago.
This well-written, brief book is a reminder of a valuable perspective--not looking back on your previous life (before a crisis or other huge transition) as the ideal, but making the most of the life you have now, with the "door of your tent" facing toward the word of God. I'm not sure who would be the best audience for this book. For someone in the depths of crisis, it might seem too easy, althought the author has worked hard to show how difficult it is to gain this perspective. As someone who h ...more
A good story about dealing with life's difficulties.
How 'bout 2 1/2 stars. It was fine. It was a quick read with some interesting ideas that got me thinking. I always like that. Having just watched a close friend go through cancer treatments it irritated me a bit that the main character had so few problems with therapy, but I imagine it could be some people's experience. I did like that the heroine did not have a perfect attitude all the time and her family seemed realistic to me. The book was a quick and thoughtful read.
It gave me some things to think about!
This is hard core, often preachy LDS fiction. That's not to say that it doesn't have some decent points. I think a lot of us go through things that make us question our faith. That's OK, and I appreciate that notion.

What I didn't like as much is how easily it all came together in the end for her. This book is short, and I think making her change to embracing faith could have been fleshed out a little more.
I did not like this book at the start. The main character is so angry and frustratingly (although understandably) spiritually blind. I only kept going because it is so very short, and I am so glad that I did! In the end a beautifully uplifting story even though you don't know at the end of the book where exactly her life was going to go, there is hope for the ultimate end of her story whichever way things turn.
This is a quick read (2-3 nights) but a nice, clean story with a wonderful meaning to it. It is about family drawing closer to each another as they go through a trial. I especially loved the optimism in the husband and wife and finding angels in the people around them.
I thought this was a great book. The reactions to something so traumatizing were well written. I would recommend it to anyone who might be facing a trial in their own life.
This is a fast and easy to read. It was story full of hope and optimism where a family grows closer to each other while the mother endures cancer.
Quick easy read with a good message. I read this on a day I was fasting for my friend's sister with cancer, very applicable and full of hope.
This book was ok. I think I was hoping for a little more depth. Maybe if it had been longer. It was a quick read and enjoyable enough.
I've been advised that as a published author, it is not necessarily appropriate for me to review other books or authors.
