This is a superb memoir, out early 2018, and I was honoured to write an endorsement for it. This is what I said:

“To be in a long-term state of limbo, not knowing the outcome or length of time waiting, is utterly, shatteringly exhausting.”
Tanya Marlow, Those Who Wait: Finding God in Disappointment, Doubt and Delay

“In a period of extended waiting in life, it is all too easy to assume that something is wrong. We assume that 'something' is us.”
Tanya Marlow, Those Who Wait: Finding God in Disappointment, Doubt and Delay

“To wait means you are constantly straddling two realities - the hoped-for outcome either happening, or not. Yes, or no. Yes, or no. You feel the pull of both possibilities as you wait.”
