This was a wonderful read. It really brings home the idea that good, decent, "ordinary" people leave lasting positive marks on others they touch, friends/family members/ strangers alike.
We see the innocence and fears of youth, the challenges of early adulthood, the struggles of middle age parenting as mothers and fathers have to learn to hold their tongues as their mature children make questionable life choices, the joys of growing old in a community that is familiar and loving.
I loved this book. It is bittersweet as is life for those who live it by reaching out to help and encourage others and choose to take a chance on deeply loving other human beings.
