Author, What Travels with Us, and the novel, Sufficient Grace
With an invitation to a “walk in the park” the author takes the reader on a journey in which he shares episodes of his life. The book provides lovely glimpses such as that of a woman kneeling in her flower garden while at work on her masterpiece. After enjoying many pauses . . . at a variety of places, we are brought to a stop following the assassination of President John F.
