Resurrection Year Book Review

 I love a good book. I also love a true story. Those two are definitely both huge reasons I love Resurrection Year by Sheridan Voysey. This book is not only a great true story, but it is a journey through struggling, learning, growing, and starting over - a journey you might be able to relate to really well yourself.
A hope-filled story about starting again after a dream has died—an emotive, poetic, and at times humorous discovery of the healing qualities of beauty, play, friendship, and love.

Expectation. Expectation. Expectation. Disappointment. After ten years of tear-soaked prayers, repeatedly dashed hopes, and multiple failed rounds of IVF, Sheridan Voysey and his wife come to a heart-breaking conclusion—their dream of having a child is over. Empty and confused from a decade of disappointment, they leave their jobs, pack their bags, and embark on a journey in search of restoration.

Voysey chronicles their return to life. From the streets of Rome to the Basilicas of Paris, from the Alps of Switzerland to their new home in Oxford, they begin the healing process while wrestling with their doubts about God’s goodness. One part spiritual memoir and one part love story, Resurrection Year is an honest, heart-felt book about recovering from broken dreams and reconciling with a God who is sometimes silent but never absent.

Like I said before, this story takes you on a beautiful journey. I have several friends who have or are currently struggling with not being able to have a child of their own. This book helped me to understand the deep emotional struggles that come along with that. I highly recommend this book to any couple going through that. In fact, I will be passing this book along to my friends.

Resurrection Year is also more than that. It is a fabulous book about daring to start over. It is about commitment in marriage and a deep love for others. It is about struggling with faith and complete trust in God. I could relate with many of the emotions they go through, and I love how it made me dream further. I also love how I got to live and travel through the author's words. It was a special adventure - one you don't often get through a book.

Thank you to Booksneeze for this book for review. I received no other compensation. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
