Wreckless Grace by Taylor D. Rambo is an autobiography of a woman who goes from being reckless to the point of wrecking her life to attaining peace, solace, and grace. The author mentions her life’s turmoil, her traumas, her faults, and her flaws, and then connects them to her present learning experiences. She includes the abuse she went through, the effects of her broken family on her childhood, her consequent regretful choices, her experiences as a married woman, and a mother struggling to offer her child a better and safer environment.

Right off the bat, the narrative is tremendously engaging and reader-friendly. The author makes sure that the narrative is not monotonous, by presenting fluctuating tones while describing the scenarios. It is remarkably effortless to develop a very profound sense of emotional attachment with the author and the story. Along with this, the diversity of experiences provided with honest opinions and confessions made the book very much relatable.

The imagery presented was exceptionally vivid, I could imagine myself painting the antiques from the thrift shop that the author had acquired. The author provided metaphors in every walk of life, and they were wonderfully easy to comprehend. The language employed was very simple and straightforward with little to no extravagant vocabulary. The author additionally includes a blog post which was a very concise and summarized version of the author’s present point of view about life, and her outlook towards forgiveness.

The author refers and relates everything to her Christian beliefs. Being a religious person of a different religion, I thoroughly enjoyed the similarity in teachings, but I believe this took away the universal appeal from the book. Many of the experiences mentioned were very common, yet the solutions were predominantly based upon the faith which took away the touch of reality. Furthermore, halfway through the book, we are confronted with too much repetition. The author keeps on repeating the forgiveness agenda somehow in the same way which got boring over time.

Ignoring the minor nuisance mentioned, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. I would rate this book 3 out of 4 stars, taking one star away because of the reasons mentioned above. I could not detect any error in the book, therefore it is safe to say it was professionally edited. There is a mention of sexual abuse right in the beginning, so parental guidance might be required for such a sensitive topic, although I believe children should be made aware of them. People looking for religious inspiration or guidance would enjoy reading it.
