I have read most of Joni Eareckson Tada's books, so was looking forward to getting a copy of her latest to read. This one is read by the author (Joni) and I was glad to hear it read by her because her reading enables the hearer to more correctly interpret by her voice intonations and word emphasis the emotions she is trying to convey (I don't think the written word would have been as effective). Even if you're not in the "evangelical Christian" crowd, this book gives you a real picture (or as close as possible) of what it might be like to be extensively handicapped (Joni is a quadripalegic). The book covers different events from her life; it is very intense; I could only listen to it in half hour segments. Being a "Joni" fan, of course I was a bit prejudiced. But, I am going to make sure that a relative of mine who is battling cancer hears this. This book is the kind you must read or listen to several times. I loved it, not because it made me "feel good", but because I love to hear truth, and admire those who want to live life embracing it, even though it costs them seemingly everything.
