Review: Crowded Skies: Letters to Manhattan by Tara Leigh Cobble
Review: After reading Tara Leigh Cobble's Here's To Hindsight, I had to read this one. It's the second in her unofficial memoir trilogy. In this installment, Cobble speaks about her increasing loneliness in Nashville, her move to New York, the stall in her ability to write music, and her adventures in New York City, with its people, energy, and culture. But mostly, she writes about the journey God took her on during this part of her life. Learning to trust, seeing God's goodness, mercy, instruction, and correction. Cobble chatty prose and relatable thoughts make this engaging and helpful. Reading her struggles helped me identify similar ones in my own life - and seeing how God worked in her life gave me hope that I will see the same in my life.
My only disappointment was how often she dwelled on her romantic relationships. But it wasn't enough to detract from the book overall. I recommend this book to anyone, but in particular young Christians who may be struggling to find there place in the Kingdom.
