Debut author, Autumn Lytle bursts onto the book scene with an eye-opening, timely novel, All That Fills Us, that really addresses an issue that has become almost an epidemic during this difficult time--eating disorders. This book comes at the issue by taking a woman through tough places to work out tough issues in her heart, and I can't wait to read it!

I don't know about you, but the idea of trekking two thousand miles from Grand Rapids, Michigan to Mt. Ranier does not fill my soul with joy. Not only that, roughing it along the way, and using it as a way to confront her personal struggles and demons? AAAK!
But Autumn Lytle doesn't just give you a researched book full of pat answers in this story. She offers a perspective from someone who has faced these same issues herself. Autumn (#notAmy) tells how so many of the thoughts and introspections are quite personal, learned from experience and shared with others.
The pandemic saw a surge of people struggling with eating disorders, especially among teens, so the timing of this book's release seems handpicked by the Lord.
Autumn has another book that I'm dying to read--one about a young college girl who gets pregnant and what the Lord does in that girl's life... and this story is also quite personal to Autumn--inspired by her parents' lives (and therefore hers as well). I'm DYING to read this book, guys.
So here's the deal. We NEED to read All That Fills Us. It's imperative that she get lots of readers and as many reviews as possible so a publisher will offer a contract for this other book. I'm begging everyone to read this book (after all, it sounds amazing!!!) and leave a review... literally everywhere. If you loved the book, PLEASE end that review with, "I cannot wait for more from this author" or some equivalent. Let's show the publisher just how great we think Autumn and her books are!
Hey, they've even made it EASY. Until release day, this book is on sale for just 9.59 with FREE shipping from Baker Book House. That's nearly the price of a Kindle book these days. Beg your library to get it. Listen on Hoopla or something. Let's get the word out about this awesome book so we can get the next.
I'm seriously begging here, folks!
Mel Ellis knows that her eating disorder is ruining her life. But she can't bring herself to go to rehab so someone else can fix her mess. Broken and empty in more ways than one, Mel makes one last-ditch effort to make hers a story worth telling. She will walk her own road to recovery along the lesser-known trails of the North American wilderness.
Though she is physically and mentally unprepared to face the difficulties that lay ahead, she sets off on foot from Grand Rapids, Michigan, and heads toward Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State. During the long journey, she meets strangers with their own stories, as well as ghosts from her past who can no longer be ignored. But though the land she travels threatens her success at every turn, it's her own dark thoughts she'll have to overcome in order to find peace in the life and the body she has been given.
With pitch-perfect timing and delightfully witty self-awareness, debut author Autumn Lytle masterfully leads readers on a journey down the hard path toward healing.
