A Good and Perfect Gift has been selected by Amazon as one of 100 books offered for discount prices on Kindle during the month of June. It’s available this month for $2.99–please spread the word! (If you don’t have a Kindle or other e-reading device, or if you’re like me and still enjoy turning pages and so forth, of course you can also just order the paperback.)

Heather Grady recently reviewed A Good and Perfect Gift for the Englewood Review of Books. She writes:

Amy Julia Becker’s A Good and Perfect Gift is not about coming to terms with a special needs child. It is simply about coming to terms with life. How many of us continue to live life with fists “clenched tight around a vision” rather than with an open palm in which our own fiction can be “scattered in the wind”?  Letting go of us and opening ourselves to God. May it be so for us all.

Cheryl Bailey, writing for the blog Special Happens also recently reviewed A Good and Perfect Gift:

A perfect book for anyone whoever had a sudden life changing event and said, “Why me God, why us.” You don’t have to have a disabled child to find yourself in that category. Amy’s frank thoughts about disability, life trials and acceptance of what you cannot change, reaches beyond coping with a disabled child and transcends into everyday life of hard to answer questions.
