Book Review: The Waiting Place by Eileen Button

 Learning To Appreciate Life’s Little Delays

I was drawn to this book because like so many people, I am at this point in my own waiting place. I’m not sure what I expected but her essays were a breath of fresh air. Eileen Button has managed to find beauty in the boring, and she forces you to examine your own life. You’ll find yourself searching your memory for those treasure filled moments you overlooked or took for granted when you were living through them.  She also reminds you that every moment of your life is a gift- even those spent waiting for something else. I enjoyed most of the stories. I wish I could say all of them, but there were a couple that made me yawn. The book is autobiographical and her writing is impeccable. I would recommend this one.

“.. . it’s easier to see that I am surrounded by imperfect people just like me. We do our best to live our faith one day at a time. We fail miserably. We get our feelings hurt and hurt one another’s feelings. We regularly fall on our faces. Once in a while our faith gives us the strength to scrape ourselves off the pavement. When it doesn’t, we hope that someone will soon come along to gently help us to our feet again.”

She’s honest and vulnerable with a great sense of humor. She comes across as the type of woman you’d love to sit and chat with over a cup of coffee. I give it 5 stars

I received this book free from the publisher through the Book book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
