  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy Crawford | 1/1/2014

    " A total piece of crap. If I had a dollar for every girl that I knew who read this book, followed its directives, and then had their lives ruined, I would be able to buy myself a new car. A mix of poor pseudo-psychology and misguided spirituality. Do the world a favor - if you see this book at your library, check it out and destroy it. It's worth paying the fines to take it out of commission. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael Stollar | 12/29/2013

    " in the process of re-reading this book...its one of the most uplifting books for women i have ever read. "

    " Someone recommended I read this book before I got married. It was supposed to be really encouraging. It was really good at making me feel bad because I never wanted to be a princess or plan an elaborate wedding or be romanced with rose petals and jazz music. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorena Walker | 8/17/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 8/1/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 7/30/2013

    " Very good! But it's not as good if you've read Wild at Heart (written by her husband) first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 6/14/2013

    " this book is very Christian base. i agree not fully to what is proclaimed inside, only to certain extent. this book teaches love on the surface, although some topics are eye-opening. whatever it is, you'd likely to have the same perception too if you've gone through Theology of the Body courses. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mangy Cat | 5/19/2013

    " I went through this book with one of my dear young friends who goes by the name of Legolas. (Yes, from Lord of the Rings!) There are some great chapters in here, but I must say that it caters more to the girly-girls than to a rough and tumble gal like Legolas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric Gendreau | 4/12/2013

    " Men, you can learn a lot about your spouse from reading this book. I am glad I took the time to better understand my wife. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 2/2/2013

    " I think part of the reason I loved this book is because it came to me at just the right moment in time. The material was paradigm-shifting for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tamra | 10/10/2012

    " This is anaother book reminding women that they are important in God's plan. The writing is not great and the premise has been overdone. I think women realize their importance and don't need to be endlessly reminded. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginger | 9/27/2012

    " Every Christian woman should read this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer McGee | 1/19/2012

    " This book was okay. For me, it wasn't all amazing and life changing as people have made it out to be. Looking back at it now, I literally can't even tell you anything I took from it. Not terribly memorable or life altering for me. For someone else it might be though, so give it a shot! "

    " Great book for women of faith to read and delve deeper into themselves. A spiritual experience of the heart of God!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda Wharton | 8/10/2011

    " To be fair... I only got about 30 pages into this book when I just couldn't read it anymore. Normally I enjoy the inspirational books, but I couldn't get into this one, no matter how hard I tried "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trenton Smith | 8/3/2011
