Review of The Artist's Daughter by Alexandra Kuykendall

When Alexandra Kuykendall became a mother, she knew she had to go back to the beginning. To that hot July afternoon in Barcelona when she met her father for the first time. The only daughter of a single, world-traveling mother and an absent artist father, Alexandra embarks on a soul-searching trip into the past to make sense of the layers of her life-both the memories she experienced and the ones she wished for.

In this memoir, you travel with Alexandra on her journey of healing and finding who God created her to be. She speaks from her heart from the time of her first moments meeting her father to becoming a mother of four girls and everything in between. Not an upbeat read, but more raw and intense as you read. But isn't that life? It's not all roses and sunshine. There are storms and very dry desert places and seasons of growth. Alexandra does a great job sharing her seasons, storms and dry places with flecks of roses of sunshine in-between.

Available may 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
