I'm a sucker for the trilogy or multiple part stories because I always want to know what's next for the characters. I've been anxiously awaiting, My Oil Of Joy For Your Mourning from the minute I finished, “My Beauty For Your Ashes.” Anxious anticipation gripped me as I waited to find out what was next for Paige, Victorian, Mason and Brandon.
I don't want to spoil the story for those who have been waiting for this book as I have, but I have to say WOW WOW WOW WOW!!! The opening pages, highlighting Brandon and Paige specifically, had me hooked. I couldn't believe that my own life was paralleling these characters in the months since I read My Beauty. Paige is feeling like she can't hold on to happiness, wishing she'd had more then one month reflects me in the past. Brandon confessing that Paige had changed his life, made him feel alive is me right now, and my boyfriend is my Paige. We will be celebrating a year together shortly, but it's been a year of self...
It’s hard to read ‘My Oil of Joy for your Mourning’ without occasionally stopping to savor the emotion or to let some of the tears to run down. Author Traci Wooden-Carlisle is amazing at fleshing out these highly emotional moments without departing believability. She is, as she demonstrated in My Beauty for your Ashes, a master in the art of emotional build-up.
I could deeply relate with the character Mason the most—like him, I lost a loved one, and his death changed the trajectory of my life and set me out on a path I never thought I’d take. But that is only one aspect of what is very likeable about this novel. The lives of the four main characters interconnect and intersect in such a way that shows you the terrifying complexity and beauty of life and relationships, especially in the context of living with God.
A perfect gift for loved ones and friends, ‘My Oil of Joy for your Mourning’ can be life-changing for the right...
I normally skip over the Christian fiction genre, but this book caught my attention—there is something about the title and cover that draws me in. And I was right: reading the few sample pages has introduced me to a motley of unforgettable stories that I will probably quote from memory from now on.
‘My Oil of Joy for your Morning’ is an incredible performance by its author—it is as if the author gathered and condensed all the raw human emotions from countless individual lives and skilfully infused all of them in the life stories of Paige, Brandon, Victoria and Mason. I have always said that a good book is measured according to how much a reader emotionally relates with its narrative—and by that measure, this book wins huge points.
If you love a beautifully written tale of love and loss and redemption, get a copy of this book. Or better, start reading “My Beauty for your Ashes.’ Five stars for this one.
