Awesome story!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I loved this heart warming beautiful story!! Truly touched my heart. I enjoyed on speed 1.25x though, author was a bit slow and I almost wish a woman narrator read the story. None the less, I enjoyed it and have already recommended it to friends and family... Great for all ages!! Yay!!

What does Mike Tanner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Well I am really bad at reading! I am honored to have listened to Mike Tanner's reading. I wondered why he chose this story, and that made me want to read other books narrated by him.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not sure if this part of the book really happened. If it did I am impressed by the action of Peace Pilgrim and if it didn't I am amazed by the author's retelling of this story in a way that brought Peace to us so vividly. The scene involves a young boy who pitches all kinds of fights due to growing up abused. The boy even punched Peace Pilgrim when he lashed out blaming her for his fear and emotion. Yet Peace transformed that moment that could have been another conflict, turning her cheak and then reaching out to the boy to find his kindness.
Any additional comments?
I am glad Merry Brennen decided to write this book. It intrigues me because Peace Pilgrim has always influenced me in the most deep transformative way. I never met her, in fact I was born 14 months after she died. But I read her book in a time of upheaval, age 18, being diagnosed bipolar. I walked with her thinking and wondering about her selflessness when I visited a Quaker community in Costa Rica and took the identity of Friend. That first book didn't just influence me by teaching me a different way to move through the world, I really started knowing Peace. I was feeling very low, depressed, and unsure of God when I read this fictional retelling of Peace Pilgrim, and I feel tranformed like one character in the novel. Happy reading!
