Did not like this as well as some of her other books, but if you are interested in Mt Helens you will probably enjoy this book about 3 women who were affected by her eruption.
This book was of particular interest to me because I took a tour of Mt St Helens this summer--the thirtieth anniversary of the eruption. It gave me a look into lives of people who lived near the mountain and the pathos of their everyday and life-changing problems. So many people lost so much and yet this book describes some of gains in life-long friendships. If you have an interest in Mt St Helens and the history around the eruption, this book will give you insight. VERY ENJOYABLE
This is the amazing story of 3 women & a very sick child who find each other in the midst of extreme tragedy. The reader is brought into the terrible pain of loss & then watches how the women deal with that loss. It's a painful book because it is so real & so true to life. But it's a hopeful book because God is in the midst of the pain for each of them bringing them through "the valley of the shadow of death." This is a book that needs to be read & passed from woman to woman.
Fabulous! One of Snellings BEST.
A VERY POWERFUL AND GRIPPING STORY OF WOMEN IN THE FACE OF CRISIS.
I would rank this book a 4 star. At first I had difficulty following all the characters but they all came together in an excellent story.The friendship of the women in times of trouble is unique and speaks of the differences of women and how they rise to the occasion still dealing with their own personal losses.
