An Extra Mile is the fourth in the Sensible Shoes series. This was the first book in that series that I read. There are many characters in these books and their backstories are not properly explained in An Extra Mile. I would recommend these books from the beginning of the series in order to preserve the continuity and not get lost.
I wanted to like this book. There were parts that held my interest. But none of the character’s stories made me want to continue reading. I finished the book, however, I can’t say it was at all memorable. I might go back and read this series in order.
The meditations after some of the chapters was an interesting addition. While they were good and had some thought-provoking questions, they seem to have no bearing on the earlier section of the book,
Having read some reviews of An Extra Mile on Goodreads, I know there are many who loved this book and the series. I am glad there is an audience for Ms. Brown’s writings
I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley and InterVarsity Press in exchange for my honest review. Thank you.
