liked it

I love human interest stories. I like books that appeal to my right-brain.

So, as the Grace Effect began, I was drawn in by Taunton's vivid descriptions of the process he and his family undertook to adopt their daughter from the Ukraine.

Christian apologist Taunton is clearly a highly analytical, left-brain thinker. I almost felt like this was two books in one. Throughout the book, he told the story of the adoption and we learned about their precious new daughter, Sasha. On the other hand, he explained the back story of communism, socialism, atheism, and probably a few other "isms." If I'm honest, those parts lost me a bit because they could get a bit wordy and long... and I wanted to continue reading about dear Sasha! However, I think that is more of a personal preference than anything.

If you're interested in international adoption or Eastern Europe in general, I recommend this book. Right-Brain and Left-Brain thinkers welcome! :)
