Asia's New Wings by Clifton & Michelle Cottom {A Book Review}

As you all know, the 14th anniversary of the events of September 11th, 2001 just passed. We can all recall where we were on that day. Asia's New Wings tells the story of what Clifton and Michelle Cottom experienced on that day 14 years ago.

Asia's New Wings was genuine and honest as the Cottoms shared their raw emotions and feelings after their daughter lost her life on 9/11. They shared so much in the book about how their lives have changed since that day. 

What I love most about the Cottom's story is that they didn't stop living after Asia passed away. While they certainly struggled and have continued to have difficulties at times, they have taken the situation and turned it into something good. They began a scholarship fun in Asia's memory and have helped many, many students be able to go to college. What a blessing. 

That being said, while I loved the Cottom's story and the way they have chosen to honor their daughter's life, I thought the book was written very simply. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but it's just a fact. And honestly, considering this was their first book and their main goal was to honor their daughter's life and share her story, does the way it is written even hold that much clout? Not in my opinion. 

I praise the Cottoms for their boldness to share their story. May God bless their family.
