This book simply blew me away. These complicated characters and their relationships with each other had me contemplating spirituality and also how significantly one's upbringing and life events affect one's views on God. I can't wait to talk about it with others (which makes me think it will be a great book club book).

Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."
Clara Wall explores the subject of faith and its impact on our lives in this debut novel. As demonstrated in the lives of Charles, Lily, Jim and Nan; the road to faith is different for each individual. Reading this book made me reflect on my own journey and the assumptions I may have made based on my cultural lens. The four are brought together in NYC in the turbulent times of the 1960's providing a proving ground for their faith. We clearly see God's grace in their stories. The exploration of autism was illuminating and heartbreaking. What was missing was an articulation of the gospel.
