Review:

As a Christian and a lover of words, I find this book to be supremely inspirational. John Herrick is an author I share much in common with, especially the desire to tell good stories that come from a place of my own personal faith while also making sure to keep the story as realistic as possible so that it could touch anyone of any faith or opinion.

I am really looking forward to reading several of Herrick's fiction books I have missed out on so far, but I am very happy to have my own copy of this book because it, again, is a wonderful Christian testimony that, at least to me, does not feel in any way preachy or harmful. He is speaking from a place of his dreams and aspirations through the lens of his worldview, which is what I feel like most people do.

This book has been truly a godsend for me with recent struggles in my life, so I am really thankful that this book is out there.
