Sex and the Soul of a Woman by Paula Rinehart – Book Review


My eyebrows were raised at the prospect of yet another relationship book, particularly one with such a heavy Christian focus. I am a lapsed Catholic who is treading the waters of agnosticism as various principles within Christianity

However, despite my reservations Sex and Soul of a Woman by Paula Rinehart seemed like it was written by me in mind, or more eerily that Paula Rinehart had maybe interviewed me amongst the other women.

Tears have run down my face as I turned yet another page, as I reflected and surveyed the damage of all my previous relationships. When I begun reading the book, I was blissfully unaware that the relationship I had just embarked upon was about to career into another dead end.

This time there were no signs. It really was like a car had pulled in front of me, causing an emotional pile up that could not be avoided. If I had read this book a different time in my life, I seriously doubt that I would have taken it to heart.

What lessons did I learn?

I need to take more time to reflect on the damage I have done to myself as a result of the various paths I’ve taken on my relationship journey. And hopefully in the near future, I will find the one who is truly worthy of me.

Would I recommend Sex and the Soul of a Woman?

I would most definitely recommend this book, irrespective of whether the reader is religious or not. I think for most there will be something that will resonate within the pages.
