She does it again! Dec 22, 2004
I don't think there was ever a more profound story teller in our generation than Carol Lynn Pearson. In this tale she tells the story of a local theatre holding auditions for a play... but what the reader soon learns is that the play is in his own life and he is the star. A must have gift book for the Holidays.
