What Our Readers Are Saying

"I just finished reading "Perplexed but not in Despair..." and I must say I was not able to put the book down as I was thirsty to read more. I went from laughing to crying and laughing again. I wanted to see how deep the story gets and how did the author overcome it. I was surprisingly happy to understand the importance of having functional faith, a faith that works in the middle of hopelessness, loss, and tears. I am forever grateful for this impactful reading I highly recommend this book."
