    Inspiring, enjoyable, tear-generating stories of generosity and faith in times of uncertainty and poverty.

    I REALLY enjoyed this book after picking it up from a display area last year. Many of the stories brought tears to my eyes. Most of the recollections are set in a time of poverty and/or war. You will be inspired by what the human spirit can accomplish/realize in these times. Sometimes deprivation is a blessing in disguise causing us to rely on our neighbors and discover what we are capable of. All of these stories will demonstrate this sentiment.
