The Artist's Daughter, a review

When Alexandra Kuykendall became a mother it was the beginning of a soul-searching journey that took her into her past and made her question everything she'd experienced--and a lot of what she hadn't. The only daughter of a single, world-traveling mother and an absent artist father, Alexandra shares her unique quest to answer universal questions: Am I lovable? Am I loved? Am I loving?

In short, moving episodes, Alexandra transports readers into a life that included a childhood in Europe, a spiritual conversion marked more by questions than answers, a courtship in the midst of a call to be with troubled teens, marriage and motherhood--and always, always, the question of identity. Through her personal journey, women will discover their own path to understanding the shape of their lives and a deeper sense of God's intimate presence within it.

Truly a touching, retrospective memoir. Lovely prose, mindful thoughts, challenging questions. All thoughtfully administered through pages of her life, and wanting to see The Lord in and of it. I looked forward to reading this...delighted at the end. I'd considerate it a lovely addition to a woman's library- with it's meaningful expressions and encouragement.

Thank you to Revell for the complimentary review copy.
