Until the Bones Shine by Elena Delhagen
This is a story for everyone who’s been knocked down and found the strength to get back up again.
Until the Bones Shine, the debut memoir from author Elena Delhagen, chronicles one woman’s tale of loss, love, family, and faith. With grit and grace, Delhagen recounts the fear and isolation of her childhood and the healing journey that takes her halfway around the world. In the deaths of loved ones, in the tatters of a broken marriage, and in the loneliness of a faraway land, Until the Bones Shine demonstrates the importance of looking for the light when life seems darkest.
Until the Bones Shine is a story for those who feel hopeless, reminding readers, with Delhagen’s characteristic gentleness, that redemption is never beyond reach. Through hard-won wisdom and heartfelt musings, she reassures all who fear they’ve been forgotten by God that they, too, can rise up and shine.

This story was a page turner! I could hardly put it down. Elena has written a courageous and vulnerable memoir inviting us to take heart and reach for hope, faith and wisdom in the gut wrenching heartaches and failure that inevitably come with being human.
I found it to be a good reminder that Light shines in darkness and seeds of Goodness sprout and flourish around the edges of our personal fears, failures and doubts.
Her writing soothes the heart and mind that may be undergoing a time of reconstruction and renewal. Her vulnerability and honesty reminds us that we all long to be known, heard and seen for who we are – as designed and deeply loved by God.
Her story of love, loss and the human longing for belonging tugged at my own. And her faith, though tried, has flourished to inspire us all.
