We don't all "struggle" with this subject. In fact, much like Julia, many of us find the mere thought of considering these thoughts out of the question. I would recommend this to someone who is questioning. I would never want to try and change someone's perception of God, but for someone who has questions for themselves, I would definitely recommend this because she leads the reader/listener through a very thoughtful, intelligent journey.
Julia IS the character in this book. I love her because she is so completely honest about her journey, her struggles, the fact that she often made course corrections. This was NOT a book about any new discovery. It was a book about one person's journey to discovering a truth that was right for her, but not after leaving no stone un turned.
Every time Julia came to what she felt like was a final discovery and then considered another way of thinking of things.
I love Julia's way of telling a story in a way that relates to her audience. Most of us have all been through something that will allow us to relate to her story. I found her to be honest, funny and capable of sharing a difficult and stressful experience using humor as a vehicle. I love that she took us through the entire journey rather than just the "home stretch".
Julia was my favorite character! She was willing to share her emotional journey and was not afraid to reveal the fact that she is flawed like the rest of us. I could relate to her.
I always love to hear an author read their own work. I always feel like I am getting the "true" intent of their words when it is coming from the first person.
I love that Julia is continually having defining moments as she continues to learn more an evolve as a person. I loved watching her journey as she discovered the meaning of family to her personally. It was beautiful to experience
