I thouroughly enjoyed these little stories. I am not a huge churchgoer but I understood and enjoyed the metaphor and implication of gods presence in most of them. Although feel that having self worth and applying self belief are are also lessons to be learnt from these stories.

This is not the type of book I would ordinarily go out and buy to read myself and I was luckily enough on this occasion to win this book as part of Goodreads Firstreads and I am really glad that I did.

Several interesting short stories and quite thought provoking. This is not my usual genre, but pleased that I was given the opportunity to do so, having won this book on the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.
