This book will simultaneously charm, disarm and devastate you; then it will pick you up, dust you off and send you on your way with hope and a song in your heart. Edie’s story is incredibly unique, but the thoughtful words she uses to describe her lifelong journey to peace will appeal to every reader. We are connected by emotions. “All The Pretty Things” binds us together by those emotions. Though our situations may be completely different than those in this book, they’re relative because of the masterful way Edie connects hearts and minds with pain, hope and redemption. Life holds us over hot coals. Life makes us walk through fire. But always, all the pretty things continue, if only we have the strength and courage to lift our eyes and focus on the Father’s love. I couldn’t put this book down, couldn’t wait to turn every page. It will bless your heart.
