About the Book
SuperGal. Strong, successful, self-reliant. A slightly mature—okay, middle-aged dynamo, a go-getter, an achiever. SuperGal figured she could control her own life and the rest of the world as well. Love? Phooey! Never again. Until the moment she found herself, well—back in love! Joy quickly became despair when her new love fell desperately ill. SuperGal rolled up her sleeves. She would fix this, too. Tomorrow, the battle would begin, and she would find herself at the epicenter. God’s victorious hand was stretched out to Supergal, but she circled around it. Blind. And lost. Yes, SuperGal could handle anything that life threw her way. Until she couldn’t. Until she utterly failed. Until finally, God had her right where He wanted her.
***** (5 Stars)
What a lovely book! It’s not many times I come across books that are unique in presentation—this one is one of the few. The blurb and author bio make it clear it’s a non-fiction memoir, but it is, however, written in fiction fashion. The style of writing is absolutely clever, witty, humorous, confrontational, and very engaging. There was never a dull moment in this book. At some point I questioned if it was truly a non-fiction because of how well Lori knitted her story—concentrating on the meaty, juicy stuff that created an interesting and poignant picture. The story was intentionally directional in the lessons Lori needed to learn in her walk with God, so that, I, the reader, was carried along. I saw so much of myself in this story—learned some of my mistakes, misconceptions etc—and was inspired and blessed by it.
What a truly timely read!
This story teaches that God is FULLY in control, and that the devil has absolutely no say in your life, if you don’t let him. Never have I read a book that presents God as so big, and the devil as so small. This story reminds one to trust God absolutely, and be grateful for everything no matter the circumstance. A truly wonderful and inspiring read. So glad I read it!
