a book review
We can only run for so long. Legs get tired, hearts get heavy, and one day we wake up in a fog and can't figure out how to clear the view. That was what happened to Kathy Ross.
After nine years of holding the pain at bay, all it took was one incident and the floodgates of pain poured forth, drowning her in insecurity. Wave after wave of sleepless nights kept her sinking into a sea of unanswered questions.
Do you really love me? she asked her husband.
Do you think I am a good person?
Was I a good mother? Did I do alright?
This couple had a secret hiding in the closet, one too painful to revisit. That is until one day when Kathy was led back to that painful place.
In that place sorrow was released from the prison of her heart, anguish flowed from her lips and her remorse was washed over by forgiveness.
Forgiven. Forgiven. A poisonous, goading spear withdrew from Kathy's soul. She could feel it go; she almost collapsed from the release...
Kathy did. And it led her to a life of reconciled peace with her past.
The copyright date of Tilly is 1988. You may also be able to find it as an audiodrama. This book will take you about 1 to 2 hours to read and I am sure you can request a copy from your local public library.
Enjoy and let me know what you think! If you have read it before, I would love to hear your thoughts and perspective on this story.
