review 1: 10/8/08 - Mixed feelings about this one. While the storyline had good potential, I never really felt like I "knew" the characters very well and even after finishing the novel, I wasn't sure what the purpose of the story was. It did venture off in ways I wasn't expecting, and that made it interesting. But something just didn't settle well...it seemed disjointed at times & the short flashback sections didn't seem to fulfill an adequate purpose. But there were parts of this novel that were interesting and thought-provoking as well.
review 2: Sitting Practice was an interesting story of the trials a marriage faces when tragedy strikes. That said, there were few surprises in this story. I felt for the characters, but wasn't attached to them as I have been in other
... more books. I was moved by the trials the main characters faced, but not to the point of cheering them on the right path. The book itself was written in such a way that I could feel myself in the settings and sometimes even see the characters interacting. Adderson has a lovely writing style, and I would pick up another book by her in a second ... with the hopes that the characters in that book would grab me more than the ones in this one. less

A mashup of married romance, overcoming physical disabilities, spiritual guidance for everyday.
This was such a good read, dark but funny and uplifting somehow.
I kept reading hoping it would get better. It didn't.
Just couldn't get into it.
