Hinds' Feet on High Places was one of my mom's favorite books. I read it when I was a teenager, but, now that I may understand it more, I think it's time for another read.

The Gang's All Here! said...

These look great! I'm currently reading Love, Greg & Lauren, about one of the only burn victim survivors of the Twin Towers on 9/11. Very hard to read, but giving me a whole new perspective on the hopelessness of the world when faced with a crisis - picking and choosing comfort from Judaism, Catholicism, Kabbalah, etc. It seems so empty and uncertain.

Tried to read River Rising by Athol Dickson. Found it hard to get through when hanging out at the pool with the kids. May try it again when they're all in school and I can weed through all the descriptions. Just felt like a ton of parenthetical statements and stream of wandering thoughts at times.

Glad you're back!
