Walking on Broken Glass is a book with a powerful message of redemption and hope. Lead Thornton (love that she has my maiden name, btw) is struggling with a common issue that really isn't addressed as much today; alcoholism. Christa effortlessly takes us through Leah's journey by showing us Leah's Journal. Inside she spills her personal thoughts about this agonizing process.
What I really appreciate about Christa's book is her realness. She has woven in real life examples of not only the reality of alcoholism, but has also given reasons why people decide to take that route. Your heart aches for Leah and you can literally feel her pain as you read. Afterward, you rejoice at the beautifulness of redemption. It's truly a remarkable read; a very encouraging book that is sure to inspire you in your Christ-walk.
