“It’ll crush you.”
“You have to read it. It broke my heart in two.”
“My favorite from Amy.”
“I couldn’t stop crying.”
Those are the things I heard before reading The Law of Moses. I was intimidated, if I’m being honest. I didn’t think I was in the mood for a sappy, cry-my-eyes-out read. I was obviously kidding myself. Because that’s exactly what I got.
You know what you’re getting into when you read one of Amy Harmon’s books. You know the emotional ride you’re about to go on, you expect it, and yet, you’re never quite prepared. Her storytelling is heartbreaking but you can’t look away or else you’ll miss the beauty sneaking through the cracks. Kind of like Moses.
I laughed at Georgia’s persistence, I cringed at Moses’ denial, and I cried my eyes out as everything fell apart. I was turning pages quickly, dreading what I’d already assumed, wincing as the details revealed themselves.
The Law of Moses tore me apart and slowly pieced me back together again. It wrecked me in the very best way. I repeatedly found myself placing myself in Georgia’s shoes and I could feel my heart breaking when hers broke.
You will love, grieve and heal while reading this book. I cannot recommend it enough.
