I wouldn't say that I have any favorite story, but Jane's story was really inspiring. I could relate to it as I have been through a similar situation, and it was refreshing to read.
Maybe I didn't formulate the topic well. I meant more of a story that was the most relatable to the reader. Glad you found inspiration in it.

Jane’s character inspired me. Having faith in difficult times can be challenging as we tend to forget our believes in those times, but Jane never lost faith in God.

Jane's story kind of reminded me of Job's story in the bible. He lost everything but not his faith and in the end he was rewarded for his faith, just as it was with Jane.
Same! Moreover, my previous read was "The Legacy of Job's wife". I could relate these stories and both of them gave me the strength to have faith even in impossible situations. I am not a Christian but these books make me wonder more about christianity and its perspectives.
I haven't read that book "The Legacy of Job's wife". I might give it a chance. Now I am really curious about it. I think this book is a great choice for the book of the month because we are currently living in such hard times as a whole world plus all other individuals' problems we all face every day. Overall positive messages can help every human. I hope you found your answers while reading it. I am always curious about different opinions it shines new light on discussions.
Yeah, I completely agree with you on this! I did found a lot of answers in these kind of books. 'The Legacy of Job's wife' will make you see her in a different way than usual people do. You will like it so much! It is fiction though.

Thank you so much for your recommendation. Such glowing praise. I do love that when books do it, it is a certain magic. Don't you think? The power of books. I will be reading it. I don't mind if it is fiction.

I didn't see that connection as some of you did. But I'm glad you pointed it out.

I agree. And that is what was so inspiring to me too.

Janes story appeals to me because I’ve found myself in situations that even though I’ve no more strength in me to fight but for the sake of those around me,and despite not being very religious i still turn to God.

Janes story really magnified my faith.
A very wonderful piece.

Filled with so many interesting and inspiring stories but I think Jane's story was quite fascinating. I had to read that particular story all over because it spoke a lot to me. For me that was it.

I go for Jane.

I think turning to God when everything has gone wrong could be faulted partly but not entirely. Most humans are generally designed to feel relaxed when in a relaxed situation. Since God is seen, by most people, as a problem solver, who we run to in times of need, the obligatory sense of keeping a close relationship or connection to God when we feel less worried, tends to be undermined.

Yes. But what got me so involved with her story is that hardships just keep on coming just one after another.

Protagonist Jane was so epic. Despite every challenge life threw at her she managed to remain standing in faith, The author captured my imagination to its fullest extent each time i read her story. I was inspired to never give up, no matter the situation God is always in Control.

I think it is actually easier to turn to faith in hardship than it is when all is well. However we should have faith during the good times and the bad times. Jane Never allow her situations to take control of her faith. She remain focus even when the world seems to be over for her.
