Wild in the Hollow: On Chasing Desire & Finding the Broken Way Home by Amber C. Haines

About the Book
Amber Haines is a woman haunted by God. Like Eve in the Garden, she craved the fruit that she thought would lead her to freedom. But the whispers of temptation led her instead down a devastating path toward isolation, dissatisfaction, and life-altering choices. In her most broken moment, Amber met God waiting for her in the fallout, freely offering her grace and life.

This is a story of the God who makes himself known in broken places. In prose that is at once lyrical and utterly honest, a brave new voice takes readers on a windswept journey down the path of brokenness to healing, satisfaction, and true intimacy with God. Amber calls readers to dispense with the pretty bows we use to dress up our stories and instead trust God to take our untidy, unfinished lives and make them free, authentic, and whole. Anyone who struggles with doubt or holds secrets, anyone who feels marginalized or like she is missing something, will find in Amber a sister and an inviting voice back home, into the heart of God.

Wild in the Hollow: On Chasing Desire & Finding the Broken Way Home is a book that will not be forgotten easily. Within its pages, Amber C. Haines crafts lyrical sentences that beautifully capture both the utter brokenness of her past and the unending grace that brings her home to healing and freedom. Raw honesty and vulnerability cover every aspect of the personal story she tells, making it seem entirely approachable and genuine with a thematic and emotional universality in the midst of the specifics of her experience. An outstanding and captivating read, Wild in the Hollow is one book I would not hesitate to recommend again and again. It is well-worth the read.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of Wild in the Hollow and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
