I love Shauna Niequist's vulnerable writing, and I think this book is a good introduction to looking at life a certain way. Since each chapter focuses on a slightly different topic, I will say there were some I didn't like and some I did, but on the whole most of them were in the 4 or 5 star range. However, while reading this the first time I did get the feeling this book was missing SOMETHING, and having read her second book, Bittersweet, I'd say I'd recommend that book over this one. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310273609, Hardcover)

Cold Tangerines is a collection of stories that celebrate the extraordinary moments hidden in our everyday lives. It is about God, and about life, and about the thousands of daily ways in which an awareness of God changes and infuses everything. It is about spiritual life, and about all the things that we have called nonspiritual life that might be spiritual after all. It is the snapshots of a young woman making peace with herself and her life, and trying to craft a life that captures the energy and exuberance we long for in the midst of the fear and regret and envy we all carry with us. It is both a voice of challenge and song of comfort, calling us upward to the best possible life, and giving us room to breathe, to rest, to break down and break through. Cold Tangerines offers bright and varied glimpses of hope and redemption, in and among the heartbreak And boredom and broken glass.
