Thin Places by Mary E. DeMuth

Thin Places by Mary E. DeMuth is a memoir of her life to this point. Twenty-eight chapters address different experiences in her life and how she responded and how they've shaped her life. She is honest and exposes her soul to the reader. I have several sections bookmarked to read again. Initially, I thought I would be an observer because her life experiences were different from mine, but further reading revealed we shared doubts and fears common to most women. This book caused me to ponder my own reactions and life experiences. I can see it bringing healing to damaged hearts of anyone who reads it, as well as creating compassion for our suffering sisters. I'm torn between making it a keeper and putting in my church library to help other women. I think the solution is to buy another copy.
