Chocolate Covered Cashews Review

Chocolate- Covered Cashews is a autobiographical reflection by Wiley Baxter.  Primarily the text covers his discovery of twin daughters, 35 years after their birth.  He also shares several defining moments in his life that he believes contributed greatly to his understanding of how God had provided providence and oversight to his life's path. 

This book was an easy and quick read.  It is written in a conversational tone, as though a close friend is sharing his testimony with you.   It is a highly reflective piece.

In many ways, I feel like this story was written for the author more than it was for the reader.  The author was reflecting on his life story in a way that might have been more appropriately suited for an oral testimony for a small group of people.  As a reader, I had a hard time getting into the story as it jumped from event to event with only loose ties to previous events.  I imagine in person it would have been easier to follow.

Overall, this is not a book that I would recommend for a general audience.

In exchange for an honest review, I was provided with a free copy of this book through the BookLook Bloggers Review program.
