Need proof? Then pick up a copy of a new release from Tyndale Publishers and be prepared to have more than just a nodding acquaintance with the power of God through a four legged animal!
Flash is adorable (how they ever got him to pose for that cover I'll never know!), but he's trouble on four legs. I mean, c'mon...he's a donkey! Follow Flash from that fateful night when the Ridge family stumbled onto his path and read along as Rachel shares the profound life lessons God brought into her family life.
From "finding your passion", learned after Flash, ahem, had his way with a neighbor's filly, to cultivating a love for others as Rachel embarks on what should be a hallucinogenic nightmare of a remodel job that ends up turning into so much more (just so you know, the lady she worked for had parrots that watched Barney for days...yeah, weird!).
Rachel is candid, witty and heartwarming as she shares her story and her journey with Flash, the family donkey. She almost made me want a homeless burro of my very own. Okay, she didn't really, but she did write a book that is going on my 'keep and read again' shelf!
How did I discover "Flash"? I myself read a review that stirred my interest, so I ordered a copy. Yes, reviews do influence people to read books, so go and get your copy of "Flash" and share the love with a review or recommendation.
And if you ever stumble upon a stray donkey...God might be trying to talk to you...you never know!
Rachel's writing is warm and engaging, interesting and moving. She handles language in such a way that it makes a "simple" donkey and his
exploits (and those of his new family) come alive. Her ability to see beyond the "obvious" and draw life changing and transforming meaning
out of the everyday (and not so everyday) happenings, crises, challenges, surprises, conundrums and blessings is a gift I'm so glad she shared with us.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I have one regret -- that I cannot put into words just how beautifully written and how wonderful
this book is...and how good for the soul.
Most importantly, to me, was the fact that there was not one use of bad language. I knew I could give this book as a gift for a teenager I am very close to, without any hesitation or concern.
You may have to be an animal lover to enjoy the book, but regardless, the message is there for anyone if you are willing and open to receive it.
I know so many other reviewers have gone into more detail about this book, but I am just here to say: Its a clean, decent book with a clear clean message. If you are looking for a clean read or a gift for someone, this is a book you can purchase without concern.
I liked the book very much because it was spiritual without being religious and full of wisdom without being preachy. I recommend this book highly which is full of sage wisdom and is fun to read.
