The Story Jar
by Robin Lee Hatcher & Deborah Bedford
Publisher:Hendrickson from Alban Books
A jar can be used for jam, or for collecting coins for charity, or, as in this inspirational book, as a container and preserver of precious memories.
This skilfully crafted novel blends the stories of three women and the mementoes which symbolised turning points in their lives. It would appeal particularly to mothers, and would also have resonance with anyone coping with cancer or finding difficulties with adolescent children.
Penned with vitality and credibility I found this book extremely readable, unusual and memorable. I could not help but be moved, occasionally to tears, by the warmth of Godís love embracing and suffusing the lives of the three very different women portrayed.
Two talented women writers have succeeded in producing a faith-enhancing book which you will want others to read.
