Regina Brett is a writer and journalist and she writes a column in my local paper, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, that I read every Sunday. I've been hearing about her book, God Never Blinks, and I especially enjoyed Lesa's review at Lesa's Book Critiques.
Here's a description of God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours By Regina Brett from Hachette Book Group:
Already an internet phenomenon, these wise and insightful lessons by popular newspaper columnist and Pulitzer Prize finalist Regina Brett will make you see the possibilities in your life in a whole new way.
When Regina Brett turned 50, she wrote a column on the 50 lessons life had taught her. She reflected on all she had learned through becoming a single parent, looking for love in all the wrong places, working on her relationship with God, battling cancer and making peace with a difficult childhood. It became one of the most popular columns ever published in the newspaper, and since then the 50 lessons have been emailed to hundreds of thousands of people.
Brett now takes the 50 lessons and expounds on them in essays that are deeply personal. From "Don't take yourself too seriously-Nobody else does" to "Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift," these lessons will strike a chord with anyone who has ever gone through tough times--and haven't we all?
Regina Brett will be at several local book signings locally and I plan to attend one and buy a copy of her book. I look forward to meeting Regina and reading God Never Blinks.
