Story Lover? Nov 30, 2007
If you are a collector of feel good stories that make you think as well as entertain you, check into this small book.
A tale of a real life mother who managed to carry four-feet-eleven inches in reality but "swelled" to eleven-foot-four is charming. The author has even adapted it to a children's book. Hope, love and forgiveness fill the story and I struggled with keeping dry eyes.
The second story within the book visits Joseph huddled with the newborn Christ, shielding the baby from the storm outside and the less than perfect conditions of life. Joseph muses and shares his hard earned wisdom with his sleeping child in the touching write-up.
Finally, a teen girl with a chip on her shoulder gets a chance to see the world through different eyes. With a little bit of magical help she digs deeper and discovers that what is visible on the surface is not necessarily truth. A lovely story of acceptance and grace.
Overall the book is a mere 150 pages and each story is a stand alone and quick read.
