Poor Baby

Well now.  Heather King, whose book Shirt of Flame awaits on my e-reader, and whose memoir Redeemed I once had the happy occasion to review, has gone and written about abortion – her own.  I will be reading it this Lent.  Thought I’d mention it here.

    I thought I already posted this, but – I am planning to read this, too.

  2. So, kindle is the only way to get this book, huh?

    No chance for the rest of us tactile-spatio luddites, huh?

    No way to simply bound the words in a more fitting and aesthetically pleasing format, huh?

    Beauty will NOT save the world!

    (And while I’m at it:I don’t give a rat’s ass what they said back there in seminary school, I look at ebooks and know in my heart of hearts, YOU CANNOT PETITION THE LORD WITH PRAYER!)


  3. Thank you for this post about a week ago, and since then I’ve finished Parched and about half of Redeemed. While it’s all good, I think she really hits her stride about Chapter 3 of Redeemed.

    I’ve been reading this blog for a couple of weeks and spending so much time with the blog itself and its links that I might be in danger of losing my job. (I’m on my lunch hour at the moment.)

      Oh, please don’t lose your job on account of us. We hate ourselves enough as it is. But thanks for reading!

  4. Have you begun to read this yet? I’m curious to hear what you think?


  5. Rats. Well, I hope you will write about it when you finish it, which won’t take long at all.

    My own Lenten reading, which was going to be Caryll Houselander, has been interruped by a week of reading nothing but Ms. King, and now I can’t decide whether to go on to Shirt of Flame, or return to my original plan.
