rkfall4 Stars Out Of 5An Extra MIleMay 15, 2018rkfallQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4An Extra Mile by Sharon Garlough Brown was a fictional book that continues from another book about a silent retreat and the 4 women and beyond who participate in it. This book can stand alone if you have not read Sensible Shoes yet. She says in the book, "the first mile is demanded. The extra mile is freely given..." The characters in this book go the extra mile and we as the readers get to see what that looks like. All 4 women have a journey that they go on and we get to watch. Personally, I have participated, helped co-lead, and now lead silent retreats. I could relate to that part of this book and enjoyed those moments come to life. Cons: Unfortunately, there are parts of this book that don't line up with the doctrine of the Bible.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

The exercises in how to study the Bible are welcome, along with the spiritual reflections. However, there's a story here about 4 women and their walks toward God. This is a continuation of Mara, Hannah, Charissa, Meg and Meg's daughter, Becca. These are real women with timely life issues. The reader can find themselves in the different characteristics of these women, making them relatable.
I will certainly be watching for more books by Sharon Garlough Brown. I have recommended this to my book club.
Thanks to InterVarsity Press for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.
