I hate waiting. I am not what you would call a patient person. So when I had a chance to read a book entitled The Waiting Place, I jumped at it. I thought I would get a book that would teach me how to wait and how to be patient. I was mistaken. Instead I read through a book that taught that we find life in the waiting. It is what makes life precious.
Eileen Button's writing style is humorous, poignant, and tear-jerking. It has been a long time since I have truly laughed out loud reading a book. I did it with this one for sure! I also cried. There were so many emotions that ran through me as Eileen told her stories of her pastor husband, her child born with a birth defect, and her wait for her Uncle Tom to die. There were also stories of her church (that I could TOTALLY relate to) and the people in it and how her husband tracked down a "burglar".
The Waiting Place is so worth the read! Check it out!
Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it. I am not required to give a positive review. All my opinions are my own.
