Every Bitter Thing is Sweet

Every Bitter Thing is Sweet by Sara Hagerty sounded like the perfect book for me. Tasting the goodness of God in all things. A lesson I could continue to learn.

Yet, I just could. not. get. into. this. book. It made my head hurt. While the writing is good, Sara seems to whine a lot. And while she has reasons to whine, I never quite get the lessons out of her stories that she is trying to teach.

Sara struggled with infertility and finally came to the conclusion of adoption. I got the sense from her that this wasn't good enough and only at the end of the book, when she does have her own child, does she make it seem like everything fell into place and God did this all for the good of them. I wonder if she would be ending the book this way had she not been able to conceive her own child. I didn't get that feeling. 

I found parts of this book to be rambling and sometimes didn't even see what the point was trying to get across. I really wanted to like this book but had to end up skimming the rest.
