Amber Haines has secrets in her past that she doesn’t want anyone to know about. At an early age she strayed from her parent’s well intentioned path and started living life at her own pace. This led to parties, drugs, and sex, which all had consequences that she had to face. Even through these times, she also had a connection to God through something or somebody. She finally met God face to face on the floor, broken and needing saving. She found an insatiable love for scripture and soon started attending church, but couldn’t find where she belonged. She fell in love with a young man named Seth who became a youth minister, but the spotlights that fell on her threatened her and she never felt good enough. Eventually, she and Seth focused more on their own careers than on each other and began to move through the cycles of life. Wild in the Hollow chronicles Amber’s secrets, struggles, recovery, and healing that you will want to read.
Amber Haines really pours out her soul into this book. She talks about wanting to keep her past hidden, but she really bares all of her secrets that she has been holding back. She has been through so much that this book will relate to several different people who are going through different points in their lives. The struggle with identity, physiological issues of dealing with an abortion, marriage trials, and many more are delved into throughout the pages. She employs her love of English literature by using prose throughout the entire text so that it seems as though she is listing her thoughts more than telling a story. It was also very interesting to see the different side of international adoption that they went through that dealt with fraud. She had several things in this book that you don’t typically think about. If you have a chance, give this one a try.
