Author reaches your every emotion Jul 18, 2003
I cannot believe this book is not available. What a treasure! I reviewed it for "Pastoral Life" and fell right in love with it. The author reaches your every emotion at some point. It is a truely fabulous volume of penmanship. I was so disappointed when I reached the end. I wish it had been ten times as long. It is a thoroughly enjoyable read. Get it if you have the opportunity!
