A Promise In Pieces by Emily T. Wierenga

A Promise In Pieces

A Promise In Pieces – Book Review

If you are in a season of life where you need a message of hope… if you are dealing with situations that leaves you crying out for a reminder of God’s love… if your heart is in need of healing and you think no one understands how you feel… may I recommend Emily T. Wierenga’s poignant novel, A Promise In Pieces to you?

Emily’s book is the latest in the Abingdon Press Quilts Of Love Series – and a story you won’t easily forget!

In A Promise Of Pieces, we meet Clara – a woman in her twilight years who is carrying around deep wounds stemming from the pain and loss she has witnessed and experienced during her life.

Clara – a former member of the Women’s Army Corp who cared for injured soldiers during World War II – is now traveling with her family to deliver an important memento to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

During this trip, she shares the heart-wrenching events of her life and how the rebellious choices she made long ago have brought her to the place she is in today.

And yet – in spite of her decisions – God has a plan for her life.

Here is what Emily – the author – has to say about Clara:

I connect with Clara, who is a very broken person. She’s a pastor’s daughter who, like me, was disillusioned about religion and desperate to encounter God for herself. I too needed to get away from home in order to realize that God had been there the whole time. My relationship with God was restored upon returning home to care for my mum. I’ve also battled infertility and miscarriage and could relate to Clara’s fear of loss.

Wierenga hopes that in reading A Promises in Pieces, you will find the courage to love, especially if loss and fear have been standing in your way.

God mends the most broken of hearts and places the lonely in families.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
