Hearing another woman's story always helps me to relate to current situations, be it my own or others I counsel. I'd just helped a friend move after declaring she was done defining herself by someone else's abusive put downs, when I saw this book. The first lines resonated with the situation, and I snapped it up. I don't like to give material to someone unless I know the contents, so I can be prepared to answer questions, so I read the entire book that night. Ms. Sproules' story was as compelling as any novel, with each chapter containing poignant examples of growth through submission to a God bigger than the situation. I could easily visualize the release of dumping the old sheets in the trash after the betrayal, and the cleansing feel of new sheets.
Whether you need new sheets, we all experience betrayal and hurt, and need a new start somewhere in our lives. Whatever your hurt, and whatever your symbol, this is a journey we can relate to and learn from. I found much encouragement and inspiration in this little book. I'll be purchasing more of these easy-reading little books to have ready for those in need.
