What People are Saying About This

Frederick Buechner

An honest and unsparing account of a dark time and of a search for light.

Desmond Tutu

This is a searingly honest account of one man's descent into a personal hell of despair and recrimination, only to be surprised to find God there and the subsequent exhilarating discovery of grace as he surfaced, guided by the wisdom of pelicans. A beautiful and deeply moving story.
