I received Ryan's Crossing in the mail yesterday, and decided to start reading. Within a few minutes I was hooked. This was the first book I read by Carrie Daws but it will not be the last. I found myself asking some hard questions and comparing my spiritually life to Ryan's. While I have been a christian for many years, I too find myself running away from relationships. This book left me longing for friendships and a sense of community. While I have many acquaintance, the tendency to hold them at arms length has prevented me from experiencing true friendships. The author had a way with words that just draws you in. I love the way the angel Matthew was used and the conversations with God. There is no way this could have been written without having first hand knowledge on the way a relationship with Christ is truly lived. Throughout out the book I found myself seeking God's guidance. Ryan's Crossing is truly an amazing book that speaks to your soul.
