I have to say, I am very glad that book club chose this one. I really don't think I would have ever picked it up on my own to try reading it again.
The analogy that is made between Rick and the story of Abigail has really given me something to think about it. Here is one of my favorite quotes so far '...part of that atonement, Abigail suggests, is the idea that the Lord offers to those who have been harmed or potentially harmed by the sins of others the help and sustenance they need to be made whole. ... With their burdens lifted in this way, the sinned-against are saved from the provocation to sin and are therefore redeemed from their own sins.'
A few days ago while I was talking to my mom, I told her how interesting it is that even though no new information is added, no new facts, but when we read something in black and white or when someone else explains it to us, something clicks and we understand it all over again.
A full review at the end of the month.
