Second, I knew what HG was before reading this book. My own little sister struggled with it last year. But I was on the opposite coast from her, so I didn't experience it like I would have had I lived in the same city. So in that regard, I didn't truly understand what HG was like. Now I do. And I wouldn't trade my post-partum stroke for HG any month of the year.
Expecting Grace has lots of chapters, but they're short, so it didn't take a whole day to read. For the majority of the story, Leah writes that she was severely sick--the bending over the porcelain throne kind of sick. She (thankfully!) doesn't go into much detail here, so that's probably one reason for the brevity of the story. (I for one would not want to read 60 pages describing throw up.)
Her story shows amazing faith in what God can do. I've had some rocks in my own path, and I could feel that sisters-in-Christ bond of shared trust in the Almighty come through the digital page and seep into my heart. I'm not much of a non-fiction reader, but this book is definitely worth making an exception.
