Review: Wild In The Hollow by:Amber C. Haines

Wild in the Hollow: On Chasing Desire and Finding the Broken Way Home
About the Book:
Amber Haines is a woman haunted by God. Like Eve in the Garden, she craved the fruit that she thought would lead her to freedom. But the whispers of temptation led her instead down a devastating path toward isolation, dissatisfaction, and life-altering choices. In her most broken moment, Amber met God waiting for her in the fallout, freely offering her grace and life. 

This is a story of the God who makes himself known in broken places. In prose that is at once lyrical and utterly honest, a brave new voice takes readers on a windswept journey down the path of brokenness to healing, satisfaction, and true intimacy with God. Amber calls readers to dispense with the pretty bows we use to dress up our stories and instead trust God to take our untidy, unfinished lives and make them free, authentic, and whole. Anyone who struggles with doubt or holds secrets, anyone who feels marginalized or like she is missing something, will find in Amber a sister and an inviting voice back home, into the heart of God.

My Review:
 They say that God comes to where we are at. He finds us there scoops us up into His loving arms and takes us to freedom. He is a God that will never stop pursuing His child. Nope, never stop. He will relentlessly pursue you until the ends of the earth and nothing or no one can stop Him. The author takes you for a long poetic and very real ride down a path of pain, hurts that eventually ends in her finding freedom.

 Getting back up time and time again after doing it wrong for the millionth time is not the easiest especially for a child of God. Amber shares with her readers about her own struggles and her own Jesus. In her very touching words you shares how we all feel from time to time. Then she shares the way out, the way to a Father that loves without conditions.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Revell.
