Mitsy's Life: Tender Tales of Friendship, Loneliness, Loss, and Love by Marti Eicholz introduces us to Mitsy, whose first memories are of looking down into a courtyard from a window above a humble store front church. From the time she could walk, Mitsy had known her mother as a distant person and her father was always too busy. Mitsy could have grown up to see the world as a cold, uncaring place, but instead she grew up to see it bright and full of wonder. Mitsy's grandmother is the one who teaches her about Jesus and that He is a friend who lives in her heart; its that thought which has led her into adulthood.
This is an interesting book and to me it takes a look at nature vs nurture. Mitsy was not really loved much as a child, her parents weren't ideal, but still she manages to find a way to see the world. This is a solid, well written book that shows you how things can be. As humans, we all have a different outlook on life, and different situations can create different outcomes for people. That was what drew me into this story of Mitsy's life; it is a very human story and you can't help but feel drawn in. There were a few moments that for me were a little bit slow, but otherwise this book was a fantastic read. It is well written and author Marti Eicholz has created a book that will teach you some lessons while you enjoy the read. If you are someone who likes to take a journey in your reading, this book is for you. It feels like a journey of watching someone overcome the bad in life to see the good.
