The Waiting Place, written by Eileen Button is a collection of essays centered around the amazing things that can emerge from the pauses in life. The premise behind this book is to cause its readers to see differently the pauses within their lives, to see them as opportunities to grow and possibly even flourish.
This book contains twenty-two chapters filled with personal stories from Eileen’s own life. Within these stories, she presents the truth without omitting any details, bringing a very personal truth to the book’s theme.
These stories, her personal stories, have a way of causing the readers to reflect on their own lives and the circumstances that surround them. They have a way of bringing thoughts to the forefront of one’s mind.
While these stories, for the most part, are relatable to the readers, there are some that can only, in my opinion, be completely understood by the author herself. Still, it makes for a good read.
All in all, this book is a pleasant read and would be a benefit to anyone who chooses to turn its pages.
