Ricky Texada shares the story of the loss of his wife and the journey that led him to a women he had met in college (Cyd) and the joy he found along the way. I found this to be a powerful story and would share it with anyone who has faced a serious loss and struggles to find God and find themselves. Following Ricky through his loss as he learned and grew from the experience despite the pain he felt held me spellbound throughout the entire book. His experience is a reminder that bad things happen to good people all the time and that God is still in control. The theme throughout the book was that God loves us and he has a plan for us, even if it isn’t the plan that we would have chosen ourselves.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has faced a serious loss or who struggles with reconciling God and that terrible things that can happen to good people.
I was given this book by Bethany Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
