I read many books at others' suggestions. I happened upong this book, however, simply by chance...and am SO THANKFUL that I did. It is an utterly honest look inside the heart the author, and I believe, of every Christian lady. It reveals our fears and insecurities and then brings the clarity and comfort of God's Word into the midst. The book flows very easily and is filled with personal stories from the author's life, letting you know that she is writing from experience. I am better for the experience of reading Beauty by the Book.
