{{Book Review}} Wild In The Hollow: On Chasing Desire and Finding the Broken Way Home

Amber Haines is a woman haunted by God. Like Eve in the Garden, she craved the fruit that she thought would lead her to freedom. But the whispers of temptation led her instead down a devastating path toward isolation, dissatisfaction,
and life-altering choices. In her most broken moment, Amber met God waiting for her in the fallout, freely offering her grace and life.

This is a story of the God who makes himself known in broken places. In prose that is at once lyrical and utterly honest, a brave new voice takes readers on a windswept journey down the path of brokenness to healing, satisfaction, and true intimacy with God. Amber calls readers to dispense with the pretty bows we use to dress up our stories and instead trust God to take our untidy, unfinished lives and make them free, authentic, and whole. Anyone who struggles with doubt or holds secrets, anyone who feels marginalized or like she is missing something, will find in Amber a sister and an inviting voice back home, into the heart of God.

*My Review*

This book is the first I've ever read by Amber C. Haines. When I received the email to sign up for  "Wild In The Hollow" I looked at some reviews & I have to say...great reviews so I decided to sign up to review it. After reading it, I can now see why it has gotten these reviews!

I loved Amber's style and how honest she is, because of that it caused me to finish this book in one sitting. Usually I don't like nonfiction books, & the ones that I do read seem to take me a lot longer to read everything.

The cover drew me in and made me want to read this book.

Amber poetically tells her story, one of being found by God and relentlessly pursued by her Creator.

I get that her writing style may not be for everyone, but I encourage you to read the book...It's well worth the read! 

Amber C. Haines is a soulful writer and a blogger at TheRunaMuck.com.

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I am not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
