I've been a fan of Shauna for quite a while, following her blog and Cold Tangerines had been on my Amazon wishlist for ages so I was delighted when I got given this book as a gift!
Cold Tangerines completely and absolutely exceeded my expectations. It is SO well written that you feel like Shauna is personally telling you her stories. You can tell she has thought intricately about every sentence that when she describes a moment, or a scene, or a sound, you are remembering it with her.
The book is a beautiful collection of thoughts about finding God in the every day - it really causes you to stop and look around at the detail of life and appreciate it, rather than let it pass you by. I have laughed and cried at this book and it's the kind of thing you can read just a little bit of, muse on, and come back to. It is a book to cherish, chew over and savour...that's if you can resist reading it all in one go!
I know this is a book I will come back to time and time again when I am worn out and need reminding of the preciousness of every day life.
