A Place Called Blessing by John Trent, PhD

From the publisher, “Five-year-old Josh and his two older brothers lose their parents in a drunk-driving accident. A series of foster homes and a shocking tragedy eventually separate them, leaving Josh alone, angry, and distrustful of most everyone. At age eighteen, Josh strikes out on his own to find work. With only a high school education and few life skills, he is one step away from homelessness when Providence brings him to a place where he finds much more than physical shelter. For the first time in his life, Josh receives unconditional love and something every human being craves, the gift of ‘the blessing.’”

It is a simple book. Not in a bad way, but it was simple to read and easy on the heart. At the end it talks about the message they were weaving into the book and I could see it looking back. I’m not sure that I could say that I would have pulled all those exact things from the book but I thought it was a very unique way to introduce or review the ideas.

I would recommend this book to other people because it was a simple book with a good message.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
