My Life in His Hands Review and Recommendation

I am an avid reader, and so sometimes I run across unique and interesting books that I think are worth recommending. Two days ago, I picked up the book My Life in His Hands by author Sarah Louise Rosmond and I loved it.

The book is the first of three about the life of the author, who grew up in a terribly abusive household under a monstrous father and how she endures years of abuse, both physical and sexual.

That topic may not sound like something most people would want to read but the author has a unique voice, one that is capable of displaying that despite all of this, there is a sense of hope and persistence that we can all aspire to. The blatant honesty and presence in every paragraph drive you forward. The pacing is just excellent and I read the entire first book in just a little over twenty-four hours.

I simply cannot recommend this book enough and I am already reading book 2 to find out what happens next. I am certain I will finish the trilogy in relatively short order.

5/5 Stars (You can see my goodreads review here)





It takes a child,
To measure our pride,
To softly know of simple love.
What wonder is finite
In the universe of imagination?
By what measurements can we justify
The boundless design of simple curiosity?
There is hope beyond the ‘me’ and ‘mine’ of early ignorance.
An amalgamation of then and now.
It is the breaking lose of joy that accompanies compassion
It is the skipping of rocks across a pond,
And the simple sharing in water in singular moments.
Yes, it takes a child,
To show me the way back.

Door to Nowhere

Door to Nowhere

Door to Nowhere

Down the hall and to the left

Then back round again

The door stands before the dark corridor

I look

There is light there

But Vision is blurry

Legs are tied

Will is waning

No time now

How many more doors to nowhere?

Was this the last dead end?

Only one way to know
