“Bittersweet is the idea that in all things there is both something broken and something beautiful, that there is a moment of lightness on even the darkest of nights, a shadow of hope in every heartbreak, and that rejoicing is no less rich even when it contains a splinter of sadness. It’s the practice of believing that we really do need both the bitter and the sweet, and that a life of nothing but sweetness rots both your teeth and your soul. Bitter is what makes us strong, what forces us to push through, what helps us earn the lines on our faces and the calluses on our hands.”

In this follow-up book to Cold Tangerines, author Shauna Niequist shifts her gaze to the challenges and blessings of change in Bittersweet. Drawing from her own experiences in a recent season of pain and chaos, she explores the bits of wisdom and growth we earn the hard way, through change, loss, and transition, and offers her own reflections on what brought her hope along the way.

    " Lot's of laugh out loud moments. Not, though, necessarily spiritually grounding. Would recommend for a light read. "

    " I love this book, it truly is inspiring. It reminds me to live. I know that sounds weird but I get caught up in the day to day business. This book reminds to have dinner parties, smell the roses, and take pleasure in the small things. "

    " Okay, but not earth-shattering as I expected it to be from others' reviews. "

    " I hung on every word in Cold Tangerines, but this book didn't reach me as deeply. Although I did find things in it that I wished I could share with other friends, and I did blog about her dad's take on prayer. "
