Read from December 19 to 21, 2011

This book I found very hard to rate. It is Lucia Greenhouse's personal story, and I don't know if that can be rated.

I found it interesting to learn of Christian Science, I used to pass a Christian Science church and reading room on my way to work, and I always wondered about it, but never took the time to find out.
But while I found it interesting, I also found it frustrating to read about too. This book mostly focuses on what happened to Lucia's mom when she got a tumor and refused all medical attention until it was too late. While I believe that as adults we have the right to make up our own mind on religion, I couldn't help but think what would have happened had one of the kids gotten sick while still under their parents home.

This book kept me reading, and I admire Lucia's courage at sharing what her family went through and her own pain and suffering in regards to Christian Science.
