Surprised by Oxford

Title: Surprised by Oxford 
Author: Carolyn Weber 
Publisher: Thomas Nelson 
Genre: Non-Fiction 

Surprised by Oxford by Carolyn Weber, describes the journey of a woman from being agnostic to believer. Due to the influence of her past experiences, Carolyn has lost her faith in Jesus but when she comes to Oxford, the environment and incidences makes her to let go her past and reconcile her faith. 
This book is a splendid read and looks very real at every part. The architecture of Oxford described in the book is brilliant and if you have ever visited Oxford you can connect to it instantly. Though basically this memoir is a love story of a woman searching for her husband but, it would be an awe-inspiring read for any Christian to see how God helped the author to triumph over all the obstacles and develops faith. 
The only backlog I found in the book is that it is really very long. I do not skip any part of the book while reading as it hurts the flow; some parts could have been removed or briefed a bit. Though some parts are fetched, the past experience of the author and the reason behind her obstructive feminine thinking is not elaborated in the book. 
This book is recommended for anyone who is looking towards to get surprised by how God can help you overcome your problems and will develop faith in you by his grace. 

Rating: 4/5
