Good book. Great book. Driftless. Such amazing down-to-earth characters. Such a town. Superb writing that gets into your heart.
And this story, unlike some of the others I have read lately, is real, truthful, and uplifting. Uplifting!
Heaven Admin asked recently on the forum how we would define spirituality. I realize something as I am writing this blog entry. If I were to tell you that this book is spiritual, there may be a connotation to the word that could make you wince. Am I right? As I say spiritual, do you think "blissy" and "goody-goody" and roll your eyes? We've all heard it before.
This book is not blissy or goody-goody. It simply has a lot of God wisdom in it. It is not an ordinary book. It is extraordinary. Forget I mentioned the world spiritual.
It is interesting about the author, David Rhodes. The last book he wrote was thirty years ago! It is as if he had been in the desert for thirty years! It took him ten years to write this book! That was ten years well-spent.
Here are some of the chapter titles -- I love them!
A Private Heaven
The Meaning of Truth
The Universal Acorn
Trapped by the Past
Making Other Arrangements
I was raised on books. I mean, books raised me. Big influence on me. They gave me what to aim for. They gave me more than ordinary life did. I cannot imagine how I might have turned out without the inspiration of books.
This is a good one.
Sally, read this book and report on it here!
