    Describing the Indescribable

    Describing the Indescribable

    Eric does an incredible job of describing the indescribable thoughts and feelings we have inside us. His sharing of how one has an inner voice and how it's difficult to understand it, let alone listen to it, helped me reflect the same experiences I've had. And gave me direction on how to process the inner voice that I have.

    The story also provides a great story of a young man's growth into understanding where his place is, which to me, is right where we're suppose to be. It's also a great tool to trigger fond memories I have of my Grandfather and truly reminds me of the blessings I've had with a relationship with my Grandfather.

    A Super Feel Good Read.

    Thank you Eric.

    BEST BOOK IN YEARS!

    The JOB, by Eric Whitfield was a first experience for me: the only book I've read that beckoned not just a second, but a third read. The JOB touched me deeply,along the way leaving streaks on my cheeks and creases from laughter on my face. The author tells a story that is written for each of us, in a way that reminds us of how good and able we are. Eric Whitfield tells his story in a poetic dialogue that sucked me supersonically to a finish that left me breathless,satisfied and and more aware of my own relationships. I haven't been this moved by a book in years!

    The Power of Love!

    Eric Whitfield has captured the essence of growing up, dealing with life and loss and the journey to find your place in the world. He uses words and phrases to paint a picture that pulls the reader into the story. This is a story you will read over and over again.

    A Touching Story

    Eric Whitfield has written a book that will touch the hearts of everyone who reads this. In this day and age it is easy to lose track of the little things that make us happy, and also the value of family and friends. The Job opens up your mind and allows you to look at what's close to your heart and soul. It is an incredibly inspiring story.

    Nurture Your Spirit.......Read This Book,

    Eric Whitfield displays moving talent in his first novel. He paints pictures with words that stir memories and validate feelings. 'The Job' is a delight-- especially in the wake of sad happenings in our nation. This holiday season is one that is finding many people in need of personal hope and comfort. This story offers just that. It is a story of grief. It is a story of love and inspiration. Thank you, Mr. Whitfield.
