I took Ann Voskamp’s new book down to the water.  It was a perfect morning.  A fish actually jumped in the lake and geese flew overhead in a September blue sky.  I came anticipating the beauty I knew Ann’s words would hold.  A beautiful place for a beautiful book.  But the truth is that Ann Voskamp’s greatest power has always been to knock the wind out of her readers.  To take them out at the knees.  The Broken Way is no exception.  We come to her wanting comfort and she’s glad to give it – at a price.

One of the great challenges of the publishing industry in the twenty-first century is that it is overwhelmingly dominated by white males. One small part of the necessary corrective measures is for all of us to buy and read more books by authors who are not white males. 

Toward this end, here is a list of ten up and coming women writers, whose work you should be intimately familiar with. These women are not necessarily young and many of them are well-established as writers, but by any reasonable estimation, they all still have many years of writing ahead of them.

This list is a follow-up to last week’s list of:

I am always wary of decisions made hastily. I am always wary of the first decision, that is, the first thing that comes to my mind if I have to make a decision. This is usually the wrong thing. I have to wait and assess, looking deep into myself, taking the necessary time.”

Our Latest Book Giveaway…

As a Mother’s Day treat,
We’re giving away 2 copies of  Ann Voskamp’s important book One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

From our review:
Ann’s writing reads like letters from a poet or a priest.  She is caught up in the world where God is expressing love through the gifts which show her he can be counted upon.  There is a section where she describes contemplating a soap bubble while washing dishes.  I read with marvel as she over and over finds another way to express God’s truth and reality’s frailty and beauty here.  Ann is able to find Jesus in ten thousand places and has gifted us all with a window into a different kind of living.
