I read this poignant and honestly-written book while working through the breakdown of a relationship. It illustrated some truths:

- When you face tough times, your character begins to show more clearly.
- It is amazing the eventual change in perspective that can come from trusting in God through tough times.
- "Be thankful in all circumstances" - very wise advice!

I found myself wondering about where Gracia is today, and what the long term impact has been on her life, both good and bad.

I also hope the lessons that were illustrated in this book would teach me how to be a more devoted follower of Christ in my own situation of comparative ease; may it never come to the point where it takes an extreme situation to cause me to be thankful or to be devoted or zealous in my own walk with God.
