I couldn’t get past the first chapter, as all the references were very much centered around the life of a White Christian woman. I’d say the only refreshing non-white reference was from Maya Angelou, but other than that it is laden with the lifestyle of a white woman (stay at home moms who have 3 kids, school, House and church duties, husbands who travel, no actual life threatening struggles or coming from actual real world problems) as well as movie characters that are supposed to be relatable, (ie Zena the warrior princess and Catness from the Hunger Games). The deepest it gets is dealing with a disabled child or a sudden death of a loved one. But to be honest, I just could not relate AT ALL. I seriously TRIED. Im an open person, but the biased white female centered perspective was really getting to me. As a woman of color it was a bit disturbing how clearly subjective this book was written. Not sure if the author noticed it herself, as I wouldn’t expect her to at all, coming from an extremely sheltered background, but it is clearly directed towards a specific group of people. If this was her intention then this book is great and knows its target audience. However, if this book was meant to reach a broader audience, then I’d say it completely missed the mark. I do applaud her efforts though, she seems super sweet and I could tell from the narration, has a big heart.
