Sorrowed Souls by Brenda Youngerman--Book Review


Sorrowed Souls by Brenda Youngerman

ISBN  978-60860-733-4  Published by Eloquent Books

After reading Hidden Truths, I wanted to read all the other books that Brenda Youngerman has
written.  I was fortunate to win a copy of Sorrowed Souls in a blog giveaway.

Brenda didn't disappoint me with Sorrowed Souls and her writing style. 

In Sorrowed Souls Brenda went inside the Missionaries of Charity and really got to know the
homeless and their stories.  With this better understanding, she proceeded to write this book.

In the book we meet Bryan, Amy (Amber), Gus, and others who touched their lives.
The story starts with Bryan who wakes up on the streets, and a loss of memory.  He meets Gus,
who helps him learn the way of the homeless. Bryan does get his memory back slowly, finally
realizing who he is, and being reunited with his family.  Along the way he's learned about Gus'
life and how he ended up on the street, as have we.  It's not a pretty story, but he wants to
see Gus off of the street and with a real life again.

As you read, you find out the history of Bryan's life.  You find out the history of Gus' life.
You find out the history of Amy's life.  How all of their lives intertwine and how all of their
lives are truly miraculous.  The end will make you want to stand up and cheer!

You don't want to stop reading once you start.  You want to know what happened, why it
happened, and just what happened next.   This is the reason I love reading Brenda's books.  You
can laugh and cry with the characters in her book.  You smile and cry with their heartache, and
their triumphs.

I don't want to tell too much of the book.  I do want to say that you will not be sorry if you
pick this book up and start reading.
