Speaking of my upcoming book The Little Way of Ruthie Leming, I discovered just now that my publisher, Grand Central Publishing, has released two early comments we have received from popular writers who have read advanced copies. Take a look below. Many thanks to Liz Gilbert and Eric Metaxas for their kind words.

If you are not prepared to cry, to learn, and to have your heart cracked open even a little bit by a true story of love, surrender, sacrifice, and family, then please do not read this book. Otherwise, do your soul a favor, and listen carefully to the unforgettable lessons of Ruthie Leming. Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

If you’ve ever felt an outsider in your own family, you’ve got to read this book. If you have ever had any “sibling-issues” you’ve got to read this book. This true, powerful, deeply-moving, and masterfully-told story is nothing less than a gift. And yes, indeed: it will change lives. Eric Metaxas, author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

The book will be published on April 9, 2013.
