"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. So here's a thing I'm looking forward to: Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace, by Anne Lamott (Riverhead Hardcover, 11 November 2014).
Lamott offers a new message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, she writes, but they change us—our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Lamott writes of forgiveness, restoration, and transformation, how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost and our amazement in finally being found.
I've been a fan of Lamott's non fiction since I stumbled across Bird by Bird years ago when I thought of becoming a writer. Her recent little books on prayer and meaning were both gems, and I expect as much from this one too.
