I was pleased overall with the writing. It's about on par with other women's devotionals I've read. I honestly can't really say I was blown away, but I wasn't bothered by the writing style either. It reminded me a lot of Barbara Johnson, another Christian author whose humorous but still insightful non-fiction I've enjoyed.
I think this one would be better read as a devotional than the way I read it, which was straight through, beginning to end. I enjoyed it, but I think I would have gotten more out of it had I read each devotion on its own. That said, I think this is a book that would appeal to a variety of readers. It's intended for women, obviously, and also for Christians. Each essay is very overtly spiritual and I can't imagine that it would appeal to those who aren't already believers. While I was very pleased with the book overall, I do have to mention one small annoyance. The author continually used "Papa God" to refer to God and it drove me nuts. I mean, I know God is our Father, but that phrase just seemed too "cutesy" to me.
I recommend it to Christian women. If my church had a library, I'd definitely include it in that collection. Cute, funny, and some good insights. Definitely worth the short time it takes to read.
Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for the chance to review this one!
