Early in her book, Jill Kelly says she wants her book to be a comfortable mother-to-mother conversation, and she achieves this, not just with candid writing but also with an exceptionally warm reading. Minor phrasing glitches aside, her performance is as good as it gets with author-narrated memoirs. The author describes how her Christian faith, strengthened during her young son’s eight-year battle with a fatal illness, guides how she is raising his two older sisters. Chapters devoted to themes like surviving and faithfulness are richly illustrated with anecdotes of the author’s life and conversations she has with her daughters. Her poignant reflections, along with a natural, heartfelt reading, give this audio a ring of truth that will impact anyone’s approach to parenting.
