Songs of the Brokenhearted by Sheila Walsh

I believe Sheila Walsh when she writes about trusting God because I know she's been through a lot of heartbreak in her own life.  I think it is important to have interesting stories that also portray a Biblical/Spiritual truth.  This book does both.  One suggestion is I think it should have been written as a series with more than one book.  It touched on so many topics where a someone deals with heartbreak.  But I felt like it didn't give enough time to each situation before it moved on to another. 
 I thought it was very encouraging to show how Ava used ministry to others as a way of helping herself deal with heartache.  I believe that is part of the healing process whether it be grief or anger.  Reaching out to others and thinking and caring about others helps prevent a "poor me" type attitude. 

I received this book free from Booksneeze and was not required to write a positive review.
