    A reviewer

    A kindred spirit is hard to come by. And a kindred spirit who can teach us to look at the world with new eyes is an especially rare bird...or bovine. Rita Reynolds found such a teacher in Christina, the cow with a taste for metaphysics who showed up unexpectedly in the driveway to her farm one January and never left. The two friends discuss love, peace, and 'the sacredness that flows through all life and form' in a series of dialogues that are part Henry David Thoreau and part Lewis & Lewis 'C. S. & Carroll'. 'To communicate is a gift one can give forth,' Christina tells Reynolds. 'Those of the non-human world instinctively know and choose to communicate in a loving, supportive manner.' And there you have the essence of this wise, whimsical book. Reynolds' writing flows as effortlessly as a brook. What she says is soulful and heart-felt, and its aim is always true. We could all use a Christina to point us in the right direction when we've lost our bearings, and Reynolds has generously lent us hers.
