Not being much of a poetry reader I was hesitant to purchase this book. Then I heard it provided spiritual insight on his faith journey. I also went to a reading by the author and knew I had to have this book. I haven't been disappointed. A must read in my opimion.
The poems in this book are breathtaking! From the moment I read the first poem, I was spellbound and had to continue! David writes with the kind of splendor that takes you on a journey that eases the mind! The next Robert Frost!
