    One thought on “Orange Jumpsuit: Letters to the God of Freedom”

    1. No book has affected me as did this one. Tara Leigh Cobble's transparency, brilliance, wit, and passion permeate every page . I didn't feel entertained while reading this book; I felt understood.

    2. Simply put, I loved this book. Honored to have met up with Tara Leigh while she was in the middle of writing this book. Her warmth and the depth of her personality is reflected in the way she tells her story. I couldn't put it down. She talks candidly about her faith, her life in New York City and the call to move to the South, as well as her friendships and relationships, her struggles, her insecurities - my faith was challenged and deepened in reading her story

    3. Another incredible book by Tara Leigh. I'm blown away by the uniqueness of her writing as she continually pours out truth. The truth of life's hardships yet always correlates them to her walk with the Lord. I find myself putting myself in her shoes and yearning to see and do life as she does. What an example she sets for so many women out there. This is a must read!

    4. My new favorite author! I loved this book, one of those I couldn't put down, so read it in two days. One of the most well-written and honest pieces about authentic Christianity lived out in full color. No hiding here, and nothing to make a non-Christian squeamish. ;-) A "strong" recommend.

    5. Great book. TLC is a very gifted artist. She has released several music CD's, books and is a sought after speaker. I recommend this book and anything that she has released. This book is more geared toward women, but I was inspired as well.

    6. God used tara-leigh's refreshing honesty to challenge and break me in the best way possible. if you are a single lady, this is a MUST read. if you're taken, it's a MUST read. if you're somewhere in between, you guessed it -- it's a MUST read.

    7. Orange Jumpsuit is Tara Leigh Cobble's journey from New York to South Carolina and her journey from the prison jumpsuits of fear and insecurity to freedom. At the start of the book, Tara Leigh is living in NYC, thrilled to be in the heart of Manhattan. When God prompts her to move to Anderson, South Carolina, she obeys - but not without asking for multiple confirmations and not without wrestling with God about why she needs to do this. She ultimately obeys, but it was refreshing to read an hones [...]

    8. Tara Leigh Cobble is an author, minister, and singer/songwriter who's fairly well-known in Southern Reformed circles. This memoir revolves around her moving from her beloved New York City to South Carolina, building a life and ministry there, and falling in love with a man who can't seem to make up his mind about her. It's well-written and contains some good insights but personally, I almost couldn't finish it because it's so steeped in specific faith culture aspects that now give me serious hee [...]

    9. Wow. I don't think I've ever read a book this honest. Writing is always deeply personal, even if the writer is simply putting forth the boring facts of an event; I cannot imagine the kind of courage it took for Tara Leigh Cobble to not only write this, but then publish it, allowing the public exposure of her struggles, weaknesses, recoveries, and strengths. Based on that alone I would suggest to anyone that this book is worth reading. Beyond that, though, this book is profoundly relatable. I thi [...]

    10. Tara Leigh's letters to God is such an honest view of her walk with God in a time where he was leading her in a direction that she found herself obeying - not because she wanted to, but because she had faith that God would provide for her a better life than she already had. I can relate to her experiences so much and I felt that I had found a kindred spirit in her stories and honesty of her frustration and obedience. This is the first of her books that I've read, so I'm eager to get all the othe [...]

    11. What a great, honest look at Tara Leigh's life. It's rare that you get to see struggles, and fears in a real life story.
