Reviews - What do customers think about The Beginning of the Journey?
Delightful, and very moving, journey. Nov 28, 2007
A most unique and moving story of one young man's journey through life. His journey ends at the beginning of Life Everlasting. The reader will love the re-familiarity with a time gone by - circa 1950's through 1970's.
Newman artfully captures the reader inside the story, where the print does not stand between the reader and the story. Through her descriptive skill, the reader experiences the culture and emotion of a North Florida family grappling with life's circumstances. The over-riding plot is one of God's gracious leading, as the family moves through life to the beginning of an eternal journey.
A delighted reader, Dr. Linda Sparks Jacksonville, Florida
