Overview

In a personal journey of remembrances, Gloria Jean Pinkney shows how she came to recognize the many miraculous events in her life. In her engaging voice, Ms. Pinkney narrates thirty-three short "tellings" and uses quotes from the Bible to frame each story. This heartfelt work offers an inspiring call for her readers to enter their own "Forest of Remembrance." As Clifton Taulbert writes in his wonderful foreword, "As we read, we will be challenged to become 'dear hearers' within our own daily lives. This book will help many to personalize and anticipate the joy of 'unselfish living.'"

A book to be shared with the whole family, this spiritual memoir is also a family project. Ms. Pinkney's husband, Jerry, and two of their sons, Brian and Myles, provide illustrations, with each artist using a different medium.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Pinkney (Back Home; The Sunday Outing), a devout Christian who believes the Holy Spirit directs every aspect of her life, reminisces in 33 short entries about the times she has felt God's presence. Unfortunately, readers who do not already share the author's belief system may not see the workings of the divine so much as the merely coincidental. Faith guides the writer in opening the Bible to the right page, finding a kitten for a granddaughter, meeting a prayer partner in an airport, hearing "Gloria" over a department store's loudspeaker. Many "tellings" are reflections rather than stories. In "Color of Hope," for example, Pinkney remembers occasions when the color yellow has cheered her. The distinguished illustrators contribute graceful works in various media husband Jerry delivers the handsome watercolor for the cover art; sons Brian and Myles contribute, respectively, scratchboard compositions and b&w photographs but the art seems ornamental, not integral to this highly personal volume.

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-In a series of 33 reflections on her family and personal life, Pinkney witnesses the presence of God and Jesus Christ in her life. Each vignette is preceded by a biblical quotation, and a Bible verse concludes each entry. All of the stories are drawn from the author's interactions with friends, family, and, occasionally, strangers. Each incident is told with humor and insight. Pinkney's life of disciplined prayer and devotion is reflected in each telling. Readers will find themselves questioning incidents in their own lives and reflecting on whether or not what has happened was luck, a mere coincidence, or a message from a greater power. The author's faith and concern is such that she can find commonalities with other religions and pray for the good of all. Jerry, Brian, and Myles Pinkney's black-and-white artwork and photography enhance this work. This is a very special and personal book that would be suitable wherever personal and family devotions are central to a person's life.-Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
