I love memoirs and I was hoping to read one that would inspire me. Initially, I was a little worried. Amy's extreme involvement in Christian Sub-culture during her college years was something I just couldn't to at this point in my life. However, as Amy's story takes shape she is faced with the sometimes misogynistic culture of Christianity ( as practiced by humans, not prescribed by God), the disconnectedness of her supporters, and an identity Crisis when she is faced with disappointment and Grief. These were all experiences I could relate to, but in a different context. In the end, I found Amy's story engaging, although it was hard to connect with what exactly may have happened, or be happening to her former students in the un-named country.
