My boys loved it/ Read it to my sons and daughters and we all enjoyed it. Creative solution in the end.
This is my mother's story. This is Josef's story. This is my story. There is no way to unravel the threads. All strands become one. "I will tell all to the best of my ability. I will re-create the story from my own memory, from what my mother told me, and from the notes that she kept of what Josef told her. But you must accept that, while I can lay out the events, I can't always give the reason why certain things happened. I only know that they did, as painful as they were, and sometimes, blessedly, as marvelous as they were. But that's the whole point really. Always there remain those questions that no one can answer. But what I cannot yet understand is this our story, I leave to God, who understands all."
I'll Watch the Moon by Ann Tatlock
The story of two women, centuries apart, who are joined through a tattered journal as they contend with God, husbands - and even themselves – until they fall into the arms of the one who loves them unconditionally. When Sierra discovers the handcrafted quilt and journal of her ancestor Mary Catherine Murray, she finds that their lives are amazingly similar. Though the women are separated by time and many of the issues and problems they face are remarkably similar.
Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. Excellent daily devotional; even if you don't know what you are trying to find, gives you food for thought.
