Aurelia has been reading Running In Heels: A Memoir of Grit and Grace by Mary A Peréz
In Running in Heels: A Memoir of Grit and Grace Mary A. Peréz tells her life story – a Puerto Rican girl who experiences severe poverty as a niña, teenage marriage and subsequent divorce, single parenthood with cuatro niños, and a second marriage in which the finally proves to be satisfying. But, it’s not just the story line that makes this book alluring, it’s the way the story is told. Every word is rich and carefully selected. Every page grasps the readers’ attention. Every chapter demonstrates the fine art of writing. The dialogue, the letters, and the descriptions evoke imagery. Indeed this book reads like a movie. And, without being preachy in the slightest bit, Mary A. Peréz shows how God-given principles shape her decisions. For instance, she writes: “My kids happily camped out in their backyard in a tent under a full moon. Out of respect for Mark’s Jehovah’s Witness family, I slept on their couch while Mark spread out nearby on the floor.”
Anyone can benefit by obtaining and reading a copy of Running in Heels: A Memoir of Grit and Grace. (5 out of 5) I highly recommend it.
