A truly fascinating story of a pastor’s daughter, “Girl In the Song” is Chrissy Cymbala Toledo’s memoir of a girl who walked away from her upbringing and became entangled in an obsessive relationship. Chrissy’s struggle for perfection led her to lie to and steal from her parents, have a baby out of wedlock and lose everything in the process.
Pastors are not immune from having prodigal children so it should be no surprise that Jim Cymbala’s daughter would follow the wrong path. We would be wrong to think this story is just another tale of being led astray and finding redemption in the end. “Girl In the Song” reads more like a novel. Unlike a novel, Chrissy’s story leaves us with a wonderful message of how God can work in the lives of those who turn away from Him to bring them back into His loving arms no matter what.
I was pleasantly surprised by how well this story was told. It didn’t read like any other memoir. Even though it reads like a novel, the book is an encouragement to parents and those who feel like there’s no turning back. Chrissy found hope, and so can anyone else who desires to find their way back home.
