What Others Are Saying
J. J. and Fr. Thomas must take their own separate journeys to find what seems to be lost in their lives. A beautiful tale with characters anyone would want to travel with or meet along the way.
This book quickly pulls the reader into the lives of the two central characters, and you become more invested in their lives and their journeys even as you, the reader, reflect on your own journey through life. The characters’ travels, really pilgrimages, are rooted in Christian faith (specifically Catholic) but the messages are universal. I found this especially meaningful during this season of Lent, and read the entire book within a few days. You are likely to be a better, deeper person after reading this book. (The only reason I didn’t give this 5 stars is because the book I read previously was by a Nobel prize winner for Literature. That’s real tough competition).
The characters in this book take you on a meandering journey that has more meaning (and will be a lasting memory in my heart) than all the BIG planned trips anyone could imagine. I was captivated from the first page onward and am now inspired to stop looking for all the BIG moments in my own life and spend more time appreciating the small ones instead. Well done!
