A gift from a lifelong friend when i needed it. It has resurfaced again as an inspiration to my life. A welcome addition to the table by my chair. An open anywhere and read book sure to supply a moment of thought
I received this inspirational book over 30 years ago from my friend Jane for my 20th birthday. Recently started enjoying it all over again. Recommend it!
i can pick up this book and read a passage and ponder everyday.
