F 50x66
Composing Amelia is a play on words. Amelia is a pianist and a emotional wreak, that needs composing.

This book gives readers a glimpse into the emotional up's and downs of being bi-polar. It also shows these newlyweds life. Thier ineffective communication skills; thier scars they brought from dysfunctional families; thier needs versus dreams, thier fears and doubts. The sad low paying dead end jobs they are working till there dream jobs come along.

I was disappoinged that the author didn't delve into the prejudice and misunderstanding in the church about mental ilness. So often, you hear that you can pray your way out of being bi-polar. "If you had more faith this wouldn't be happening to you".

All and all I thought this was a good realistic look at young Christians life with normal doubts and fears

There are discussion questions at the end of the book, great for a book club.
