I love books about people rising above their circumstances and being so positive that they uplift others. "The hiding place" by Corrie Ten Boom and "Man's search for meaning" by Viktor Frankl are two of my all time favorites. Add Tuesday's with Morrie to the list!!
What a warm, loving, honest book. A friend recommended it a few months back and I saw it at another friends house and she offered to let me borrow it. What a beautiful read. I took pictures of my favorite quotes so I could remember them :).
It is a quick read (I read it in two afternoons) less than 200 pages and leaves you analyzing and thinking. If you want to treat yourself, read it.
