40 Weeks

Let me begin by saying that I love books and I love to read.  I have bookshelves filled 2-3 layers deep of books.  I have no real interest in a Kindle because I love holding a book.  For a couple years now, I've been following the blog of Paige Beselt.  When she began writing this story, I was excited to catch the little sneak peeks that she inserted in her blog and I knew I'd want to read the whole book when it came out.  I was quite thrilled when her sister had brought a copy to church one night and I couldn't wait to get started.

This book is written like a journal of a young mom's experience and pain through miscarriage and then the joy of another pregnancy.  *Anna* is so open and transparent with her emotions and feelings that I couldn't help but imagine it was me she was talking about.  Her journal entries and writings are so honest and she opens herself in ways that the reader can't help but laugh and cry with her.

This story parallels my own experiences of losing babies to miscarriage and then the joy and even fear of a new pregnancy.

If you or someone you know has gone through the pain of miscarriage and the joy of pregnancy, I would definitely recommend this book to read.

  1. I love to read as well, but have such a difficult time finding time. I need to make a better effort at it! I am adding this book to must read list:)
