Reviews - What do customers think about The Elder?
interesting read for those who like short stories May 8, 2007
I know that I always review books on how to draw manga, but I also like to read other books as well. So hear me out on this guys.This five chapter book is about the author Jennifer Paul's family. Even though she is talking about the events of the family, this story is actually about her grandfather Reverend Joe Paul and his wife Carrie. This 89 page bio is about what Rev Paul went through in the early 1900's and how he grew up from an abandoned unwanted child to becoming one of the oldest living preachers in Port Allen, Louisiana and three parishes. This book is very compelling, sad, and uplifting. I believe alot of people can relate to this book who has gone through any hardship in life, or who hasn't been through certain circumstances in thier life. The chapters of this book includes: Chapter one: A tragic beginning Chapter two: Carrie's hope for a better life Chapter three: The scandal Chapter four: Things are not always what they seem Chapter five: A Test of faith I would definitely recommend getting this book if you are one of those people who loves a short to the point biography, or someone who just doesn't like reading long novel books. This book is a must buy!
