The Artist's Daughter By Alexandra Kuyendall GIVEAWAY!

When Alexandra Kuykendall became a mother it was the beginning of a soul-searching journey that took her into her past and made her question everything she'd experienced--and a lot of what she hadn't. The only daughter of a single, world-traveling mother and an absent artist father, Alexandra shares her unique quest to answer universal questions: Am I lovable? Am I loved? Am I loving?

In short, moving episodes, Alexandra transports readers into a life that included a childhood in Europe, a spiritual conversion marked more by questions than answers, a courtship in the midst of a call to be with troubled teens, marriage and motherhood--and always, always, the question of identity. Through her personal journey, women will discover their own path to understanding the shape of their lives and a deeper sense of God's intimate presence within it.

What a wonderful story of GRACE! I really enjoyed this memoir and I think it will be one that I read again in the future.
For all of you who are saying well I only enjoy reading fiction, I am a fiction girl at heart as well but this was a very touching story of grace that you should not pass up. I learned a lot from reading this book, in fact once I stared reading it I could not put it down.
I recommend this 4 star book.
I was given a copy of it by the publisher for my review.
