( BookWorm Book Review ) on novel:"Joe And The Peace Eternal" 4.0 out of 5 stars Touching. September 19, 2013 By BookWorm: This is a touching story about finding oneself. It's about coming to terms with the dualism in each of us. Padilla speaks of an internal struggle between many forces. He speaks of finding eternal peace and accepting who we are. I found his book to be both inspiring and insightful. Whether you believe yourself to be at peace, or if you feel as though you have lost your way, this is a book we should all read. It has a good (an at-the-core kind of good) message that should be understood no matter your age, ethnicity, or sex. I hope you become as enlightened as I did when reading this.
