5.0 out of 5 stars Do you really know Jesus?, 9 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Such an insightful & helpful book. Anyone who has been bought up in a Church going/ Christian family should read this book. If you became a Christian when you were a child, but wonder if there is something missing in your relationship with God, you should read this book. Barnabas writes such an honest account of how he really came to know God, in the sense of a real relationship with Him. It made me hungry for that relationship for myself. Not the Flannelgraph, Jesus that I heard about in Sunday School & at home. But the real Living Lord Jesus, who can cope with my doubts, my mistakes, my failures, my sickness... who loves me in them.... but also, has so much more for me. This book is transformative. If you want a closer relationship with Jesus, if you have doubts & struggle with unbelief, if you want more for your Christian life. Then this book will help you. Barnabas never provides you with a to do list, or an a,b,c or how to bring about change. (I hear some people cheering & others feeling disappointed) there are no quick fixes. This book won't give you them, it will give you a renewed, honest, thoughtful desire to open your heart up to getting to know Jesus yourself. There isn't anything more important to do in this life.
Thank you Barnabas for writing this book... I believe it will help so many people, to come into a full life changing relationship with Jesus.

5.0 out of 5 stars What family secrets would drive you underground?, 9 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How far would you go to hide your families deepest secrets? Where would the lies end? When will the secrets become to big to hide any longer? What would you be willing to do to get other members of your family to comply? Could you leave the World behind & live literally underground? And what would happen if someone wanted to leave? Could you trust them? Or might they bring the truth & the very ground your hidden under, down on your head?
An excellent read, where just as you think you're getting your head round it.... Another curve ball is sent in, to keep you guessing & thinking through the moral dilemmas that this family face.

5.0 out of 5 stars The truth will come up, but when it does, it make or destroy you?, 3 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trail of Broken Wings (Paperback)
This book had a profound effect on me, as it encapsulates the complexity of family life. Originally from India, this book tells the story of a family relocating to America. It is told, through the eyes of the three sisters & their Mother. Who are all reconnected following their Father developing a serious illness. As the sisters reunite, old family memories start to resurface. Each sister has developed a different coping mechanism, to deal with the trauma they have experienced. But, once their Father is taken ill, their lives begin to unrole. How does a family deal with secrets that have laid dormant for so long? If they face the truth, will it destroy them? What does their Mother really know & to what extent will she protect her husband or her daughters? A fascinating insight into the way families try to hide, bury, deny, suppress & control abuse & trauma. But, what happens when the truth comes out - in all its ugliness, can they survive it, or will it tear them apart? A brilliantly written, insightful book, that deserves recognition for it's detailed account of the hidden pain that some families live with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, time leaping, clever, well researched masterpiece., 28 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A God in Ruins (Kindle Edition)
A God in Ruins is an exciting read, full of Kate's signature from Life After Life. It skips around time, which I love, & follows Teddy through his WW2 experience. As usual the characters are well rounded & you really feel you get to know them. Through rich dialogue, emotional responses and detailed description. Kate should also be recognised for her formidable research on WW2 Bomber Command, hence her knowledge of all that Teddy was involved & detailed descriptions of the crucial roles each member of Bomber Command played in the winning of WW2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to read a memoir, not another self-help book!, 28 April 2015
I'm so grateful to Linda, for her brave decision to write this as a memoir, not a self-help book. There are loads of self-help books to read. I find though reading the stories and raw emotions of others can be wonderfully cathartic. It allows me to give myself permission to feel the rawness of my own emotions. And to process them in a totally different way. Linda, thank you for your honesty, for sharing your story and for giving us permission to recall ours.

4.0 out of 5 stars So many secrets, behind closed doors & on "The Back Road", 24 Jan. 2015
This review is from: The Back Road (Kindle Edition)
I will never live in a village called Midsomer. If Jessica Fletcher is in town, I will be out of that town immediately. If Miss Marple, checks into a hotel I'm staying at, I will be checking out! Now, thanks to Rachel Abbott I will also never even visit a village called 'Little Melham'.
If you like a mystery to solve, lies to untangle, neighbours to watch out for, a murder or two, then this books the one for you.

Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Who is Innocent?, 21 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Only the Innocent (Kindle Edition)
Rachel Abbott weaves a great story. Keeping you hooked, as she cleverly, continues to raise more questions, then answers as she builds the story & characters.... So you just have to keep reading. This is the second of her novels I've read. Found this story fairly harrowing & hard to read at times. As it tackles some challenging issues of our time, which can be difficult to read. She will keep you guessing & questioning though, right to the end who "only the innocent" are? And who can resist more of Tom Douglas & his detective skills?

5.0 out of 5 stars This book draws "The Line" in what it is to be truly human, 17 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a harrowing book, worthy of the Manbooker Prize 2014. As you read the stories of the Australian POW's, as they worked on the notorious Burmese Train Line. You gain knowledge into what they went through each day. As well as, the men they once were (before the war) & the men some of them became as 'survivors' (after the war). The huge personal cost to each & everyone of them. Flanagan also gives you similar insight into the torturers, who in there own private worlds, were tortured themselves. One thing is for certain, no man, who survived "The Line", POW or Torturer, were ever able to live freely. POW or Torturer simply were never able to escape their own personal prison. Or to fully embrace life, not in the way they believed life & love should be able to be truly lived, experienced & enjoyed. Every man on "The Line", became part of the line, inseparable in what they had experienced, witnessed, endured & become. "The Narrow Road to the Deep North" will put you on the line at times too. As you question humanity, depravity, disease, desperation, despair, atrocities of war, love, disease, torture, powerlessness, brokenness, the past, present & future. A line will be drawn across your heart forever.

Read it and laugh. Read it and cry. Read and live, Read it and die. And remember "Pain demands to be felt". "Okay?"
