Winner of the Amreican Family Istitute's award for fiction. Great little story of family love and hope.
From the book "Both funny and poignant, The Mourning Dove is filled with pwerful virtues and life-altering choices that are lived, not preached, by its characters. Pop is a humble man whose loving example extends far beyond his small circle. While he has attained no social recognition or position, the ripple effect of his example reaches generations into the future. With simple storytelling and honest sentiment this book answers the question, "What is the worth of one person?""
This is a short book, but good story
I was not prepared for the emotion that listening to this caused. I had to stop listening on my way to work in traffic.
I could feel that I too was growing up and all that means.
Great short read with a lot of lessons yo be learned, some the hard way. This is the first book I have read by this author, but would read more.
