Most of my reviews will be of fiction books because that is what I like to read most, but occasionally I'll make an exception for a very good non-fiction book. Also most of the books I review are from my own library and not sent to me to review. But upon occasion I will do that too.
This is a non-fiction book written by a friend. She married a man that had been a friend of mine and my husband for many years. Over 20 years to be exact. And it's through that friendship that I met Ana and began to fall in love with her. Once you read this book and get a glimpse of her sweetness and her strength, you too will fall in love with her.
Cut in Half
How God mended me with 23 miracles
by Ana Le Roux
Do you believe miracles happen today?
Prepare to be amazed...
In 2003, Ana le Roux was an average thirty something mother. But three weeks after giving birth to her second child tragedy struck-the unimaginable-a violent head on collision. The force of impact thrust her forward with such intensity that it literally cut her in half!
Ana le Roux would tell you she was set to die that day, but instead, after seemingly endless dialogue with God, she relinquished her freedom of choice to Him. Cut in Half tells how in that instant Ana opened her eyes and began to experience the most amazing gift--healing.
In her awe inspiring testament of God's love, Ana's proves that miracles are not just an archaic phenomenon found in scripture; they really do happen every day in a variety of ways.
Pammer here: I like the way Ana set this up. She tells a verse, part of the story with the miracles listed, a food for thought section and a soul searching section. In such an intense story these breaks are important for the reader so they can fully digest and learn from her experience.
I love her spirit and her transparency in this book. I'd recommend it to anyone including those struggling with their faith and those wondering about miracles.
