Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Disillusioned and yearning for freedom, Emily Wierenga left home at age eighteen with no intention of ever returning. Broken down by organized religion, a childhood battle with anorexia, and her parents' rigidity, she set out to find God somewhere else--anywhere else. Her travels took her across Canada, Central America, the United States, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia. She had no idea that her faith was waiting for her the whole time--in the place she least expected it.

Poignant and passionate, Atlas Girl is a very personal story of a universal yearning for home and the assurance that we are known, forgiven, and beloved. Readers will find in this memoir a true description of living faith as a two-way pursuit in a world fraught with distraction. Anyone who wrestles with the brokenness we find in the world will love this emotional journey into the arms of the God who heals all wounds.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Story of a Young Woman Honest Enough to Tell It 17 juillet 2014
Par Glynn Young - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A story of being a caregiver for a mother afflicted by brain cancer.

A story of the daily battle that is anorexia.

A story of falling in love, getting married – and bringing anorexia into the marriage.

A story of the deep desire to have children

A story of missions – of being involved in missions in places like the Mideast where the murder
of Christians is not unknown.

A story of being a PK – a pastor’s kid.

And a story of finding hope in the one place you didn’t expect to find it.

One could write a book, or a series of books, on any one of those things. Emily Wierenga chose to write a book on all of those things. Welcome to “Atlas Girl: Finding Home in the Last Place I Thought to Look.”

“Atlas Girl” is a memoir, yes; at least, that’s probably the genre you’d find it on Amazon or in the bookstore. But it is more than that, too. Brutally honest; occasionally shocking; sometimes so raw you can feel the roughness of it. But all of it real.

It’s the story of a life.

Wierenga has talked about her battles with anorexia in “Chasing Siilhouettes.” Atlas Girl puts those battles in the context of her life, her family, her husband, and her missions work.

She doesn’t tell her story in chronological order. We may live our lives chronologically or sequentially, one event or one day after another. But it takes an approach like she demonstrates here to knit those chronological events into a cohesive, integrated whole. And this is true for any of us – we don’t make sense of our lives by examining them chronologically.

And Wierenga travels (it’s not called “Atlas Girl” for no good reason). Across Canada. The United States. Korea. The Congo. Amsterdam. Lebanon. Jordan. Japan. China. Australia. Dominican Republic. Italy. Mexico. Part of her travel has to do with missions. And part of it has to do with a restless spirit that is looking for something.

Memoir, autobiography, meditation, personal journalism. “Atlas Girl “is all of these things.

It’s the story of young woman who’s honest enough to tell it.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I wanted to love this book 13 août 2014

I wanted to love this book, and at times, I did. But as it went on, I felt frustrated with the author's perspectives and that the story would have benefitted more from a counselor than being written into a book. As a girl who grew up in a ministry family myself, I related to some of the portions related to ministry, but found her processing of them discouraging. I might not have finished reading it except that I was very interested in seeing how her mom fared and finding out if she reconciled with her dad and/or recognized the apparent inconsistencies in how she judged her mom vs. how she judged her dad. The author's care of her mother was inspiring, generous, and truly admirable. Those parts were my favorite.

Overall, I like memoirs and rich language, but this one didn't do it for me.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I love to read and read a lot 27 août 2015

I love to read and read a lot. This book is written in a very quirky manner and I did not care at all for the way it kept changing time/year. It's not a movie, so it is much harder to keep track...back and forth from past to more current time back to past or somewhere in between interjected with her mother's journal which was yet from another year. Much too confusing and disjointed.
I've never read the word "and" so many times or seen so many commas. I wanted to get the story and there were so many positive reviews I kept thinking it would get smoother and more cohesive but it didn't.
The first part of the book really turned me off. Who, at 18 months of age, remembers such detail that can recount an entire story from a baby's point of view? This made it very hard for me to believe that everything the author was writing was accurate. I have never heard of an 18 month old who can recount a story in so much detail.
I still found her struggle honest and interesting but the writing awkward and without flow. How could she be in one place telling what is happening where she was and also telling what her mom was doing at that same time somewhere else as if she were there, can she teleport?
Also awkward was the way she would tell of something that was going to happen in the future while talking about the present, thus jumping ahead in an odd way.
I don't know.
I love the actual story, her sweet and faithful husband, her very honest struggle (with a tad too much intimate detail) but the telling of the story is what gives this a 3 star for me. I love to read. I like the story. I did not love reading this book.

I am not sure how or when I discovered Emily’s blog. All I know for certain is her writing struck a cord deep in my soul.

Then I read a novel written by her, A Promise In Pieces, which I loved and I was all in – wanting to read anything Emily would write. So I pre-ordered her memoir, Atlas Girl: Finding Home In The Last Place I Thought To Look and waited a very long time for it to arrive in my mailbox. A very long time.

It was worth the wait!

This is a memoir and so much more. From the first page, Emily weaves a story, her story, much the way a novel would read. It is full of emotions with rich details which draw you in immediately. I fell in love with each of the persons mentioned in this book. Emily’s honesty is raw as she shares painful experiences, breaking open her doubts, her anger and her faith.

This book is a journal of her travels, not only to foreign lands but of her journey with God.

It is a journey not of just survival but of overcoming in spite of the odds.

It is a love story weaving together the love of a man and a woman who were committed to make their relationship work. It is the love story of a daughter and her parents. It is a love story of a fragile woman and her God. And it is real.

My heart skipped a beat as I realized my husband and I were in Japan and China at the same time as Emily, visiting many of the same sights. I cried as she shared of her miscarriage and subsequent surgeries to rid her body of precancerous cells as it brought back my own memories. And I rejoiced as I fully identified with her words, “This is marriage; to be stronger, when the other is weak.”

Atlas Girl is a book about travel but more so, it is a book which demonstrates the lengths our God will travel to come after us, pursuing us in order to bring us back home to Him. And all the proceeds from this book go towards funding The Lulu Tree, a ministry “dedicated to preventing tomorrow’s orphans by equipping today’s mothers”, in Uganda.

This book is highly recommended and truly is a must read!

The book is available today. I want to urge you to order and read the book for two reasons – the book will greatly impact your life and it will support The Lulu Tree. There can be no better return from the purchase of a book than this!
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Description and reviews not consistent with actual book 24 novembre 2015
Par Rachel S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
While the writing is good, I found the back cover description, the title, and the amazon reviews to be quite misleading. I was expecting a story of her adventures as she traveled the "atlas" and discovered her unique life path through the challenges. However, this book read like a life story witness of Jesus Christ and the Christian Reformed church. Not that there's anything wrong with that, just a little disclosure would have been appreciated. Has I been reviewing this book from this expectation I would have rated it higher but I felt like the reviews and description were trying to backdoor sneak in a Christian witness story. A lot of the reviews read like they'd been written by other supportive members of her church, which is great, but it reinforced my misinterpretation of the book's description.
