Review: A Place Called Blessing

I was recently given the opportunity to read and review A Placed Called Blessing by John Trent, PhD. All I can say is WOW- I have never read a book that defines what I tried to do with my blog and this defines it so well.  A Place Called Blessing is a story based on tragedy and learning to trust others so you can overcome that tragedy. The main character Josh is orphaned at a young age when his parents, who are drunks, are killed in a drunk driving accident. Josh along with his two older brothers are sent to foster home after foster home, until they find what they think will be their permanent home in the country. The boys begin to make friends with not only their foster parents but also with their neighbors in the community. Josh and his new friend, a little girl the same age as him, soon discover a secret hiding place. Josh for the first time in is life feels safe and secure in his surroundings. But that feeling does not last long, one fateful day a tragedy occurs. The rest of the book deals with the tragedy and he learns to overcome it.
This book is an inspiring read. It should come with a warning label like this story may bring the reader to tears. They should supply tissues with each purchase (LOL). No really this book was an easy and uplifting read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. In fact, I already loaned my copy  to one of my friends. She loved the book and she is making her husband read it now. This a book that I would not mind my teenage daughters reading. It is that good. If you are looking for an uplifting story this is the one for you . I feel blessed just reading it.
