"Wounded people tend to create more wounded people."
~Finding Me by Kathryn Cushman
After Kelli discovered her father had lied about her past, she travels across the country to see the family she never knew she had. But will the trials of the past cast a shadow over the present and tear apart the future?
The journey Kelli took in Finding Me got me thinking about healing. What if we didn't continue the damaging trends that have plagued our genealogy? One of my goals, even prior to reading this book, is to identify negative trends in my past and eradicate them. This will take persistent prayer and dedication, not to mention acute focus. But the joys and blessings that are certain to pour out upon future generations are more than enough motivation to drive me forward on this journey.
"but showing faithful love to a thousand generations of
those who love Me and keep My commands."
Exodus 20:6 HCSB
Finding Me by Kathryn Cushman confirmed this goal in my mind, but it was also quite an emotional read. I bawled through the last five or so chapters, almost swiping at tears as often as I did the "page" on my Kindle. Kathryn Cushman crafts such stunningly beautiful and emotionally charged stories that get me contemplating the real-life issues I face.
I received a complimentary copy of Finding Me from Netgalley in exchange for this honest review.
Do you like emotionally charged books that are almost guaranteed to make you cry? What was the last book that made you weep?
