    enlightening

    What a surprising little treasure. I am 68 years old and found this a great renewing of spirit for any age. I have always enjoyed Patchett's writing, but this is a real insight into a very special woman who was willing and able to share hope and encouragement in a joyful way. Will definitely give as gifts to family and special people.

    I loved the wisdom and grace of this book. I am a career counselor and am thinking about buying this book to give to my mid-life clients in career transition because it has such a beautiful view of the lessons learned in one's life.

    This is a MUST read. Inspiring.

    I was sure what to expect but once I began to read this book, I did not stop until I had read the last page. There are so many wonderful lessons for life. I was able to place my life in parallel and brought me to serious reflection. This book has helped me to reflect on many things and although not all of them have been easy, happiness has been felt knowing I have learned for my experiences. I highly recommend this book. This is a worthy gift to those who could use some help in finding peace. Simply inspiring.

    Words of wisdom

    I bought this book for my daughter when she graduated from college. Patchett is one our favorites, and my daughter had heard her speak at a literary event. The book is based on a commencement speech given by the author- it is an easy and inspiring read that you can pick up again and again. My favorite quote is at the end of the book-"You are... someone's favorite unfolding story""- Interesting black and white photographs accompany the words of wisdom.
