Item description for And Then... Came Arthur by Jennifer Thie...
When you are in the middle of an earthquake, you know the ground is shaking, but you can only hang on and pray to get through it. "And Then. Came Arthur" explores the nature of the human spirit and spirituality in the face of tremendous adversity. Hope crept into the author's life in small ways: her despondent dad's love of a found dog; her comatose mom's request to listen to Howard Stern; dragging herself out of bed during chemotherapy to hug her children. Readers will walk away from this book with a feeling of inspiration, fully appreciating the struggles they've conquered, in a word - Hope.

And then came hope and inspiration Jul 13, 2007
What struck me the most about this book was Jennifer's honesty in telling her story. She bared her heart and soul. I was also inspired by her spirit of hope and investigation and her ability to meet her family's challenges straight on. Thank you, Jennifer. I want to tell everyone I know to read this book, so they can get in on the hopeful vibe. You'll never look at a stray animal in the same way.
A must-read for those embracing adversity Jun 30, 2007
There are few books I just can't put down. And Then Came Arthur is one of them. I really meant to get other pressing things done, such as the laundry, or finishing a client's press release, but I found myself enraptured for a glorious two hours, hooked to the book like nobody's business.
Jennifer Thie's story reveals the most important component of the human condition: resilience. We learn to walk by falling flat on our faces. Jennifer does that plenty of times in the book. You learn to love her and her family's story as if they were your own. It's a great read you will truly enjoy.
