The Gift of Love Review

My Thoughts:
Amy shows us her talent for writing, by telling her family's story.  Writing about true events is a lot harder than writing fiction, but her skills and talent shine through in this story.  I followed along with the story, laughing and crying as she shared the ups and downs they went through battling Joe's illness.  I truly enjoyed this book and was so happy to read it, and have a chance to review it.  A beautiful story of sacrifice and overcoming overwhelming circumstances.  4.5 stars from this reviewer.

About the Book:
Bestselling author Amy Clipston overcame hardship and tragedy early in her marriage, but nothing could have prepared her for the trials she would face when her husband was diagnosed with kidney disease shortly before the birth of their first son. With nearly 100,000 people needing kidney transplants, Joe was on a long list of recipients waiting for a match.
After watching her husband suffer through transplants, a rejected kidney, and interminable dialysis, Amy took the ultimate risk in the hopes of saving her husband’s life and the life of a woman she didn’t even know. Through the John Hopkins paired donor program, Amy donated her kidney so that Joe would receive one from a matching donor.
Amy’s story is one of strength, courage, and patient endurance in the face of an uncertain future. Readers will be inspired by her resilience, encouraged by her faith, and humbled by the realization that they too are ultimately helpless without the power of God.
The Gift of Love will appeal to readers who are fans of Amy’s fiction and those who are facing health challenges of their own.
