KIRKUS REVIEW

The pseudonym the blentity of author of this little book, but his words and thoughts reveal a man of sensitive spirit who shares with us his feelings and reflections as he watches the slow suffering and death of a beloved wife and then comes to terms with the loneliness which follows, and the relentless questions about life and death which a man of faith must answer. He faces his tortured life with unswerving honesty, and writes out his conclusions, or lack of them, with a poetic expression which is often agony but never self pity. The reader is at once caught up in his search for meaning which makes suffering endurable and acceptable, and in the end reconciles him to God. There is nothing sheap or here; it is the sort of book which will reward the long search for such a testimony to give to others who have suffered such a way, -- and they are so many.
