The main character, Kathryn and a former preacher, Ed, talk about something I hadn't ever thought of before. He says, "...aging seems unnatural. We never quite get used to the idea of getting old. It's like it's an enemy. We're all at different stages of aging, and that separates us, by what we call generations, from each other. Sometimes I think it separates us as much or more than race, creed, or economic status."
I love how the author weaves these very intriguing, powerful gems that make you go `Hummm,"! in the middle of Kathryn's adventures. These gems turn up throughout the story when you least expect it. I loved that!
Kathryn doesn't know how to take Ed at times but he is a fountain of fun and companionship for her at Victorian Manor. She asks Ed "Do you believe in Miracles?"
He says, "Jesus never did miracles to make someone without faith believe. In fact, he required at least a little faith on the part of someone involved before he did a miracle!" Another gem!
I was taken on a great unexpected journey filled with adventure, wonder, love and self-sacrifice. I found myself rooting for Kathryn's determination to do God's will in her life, when it seemed impossible for her to do it. This is a story that fairy tales are made of--I can't wait for others to share in the great adventure I've just been on reading Kathryn's Fountain. Treat yourself to drink from Kathryn's Fountain - You'll be glad you did.

David Classen, pastor and columnist, spins an inspirational tale of wonder when protagonist--wheelchair-bound Kathryn--one of ten senior residents at Victorian Manor, hesitantly asks her visiting pastor if he believes in miracles. Thus Kathryn's mysterious journey begins--a journey that originates at Victorian Manor's three-tiered fountain. The journey brings Kathryn breathtaking challenges and change-- where she meets Jasmine, an unkempt hungry child, and falls in love with an attractive, young police detective named Ben. Sharon, a social worker assigned to Jasmine's care at Kathryn's insistence is with her, when Jasmine's mother is found dead. It's a story of miracles, loss, hope and love, senior isolation, and family distance, but also, a story about perceptions. What some call the generation gap only serves to isolate family groups, instead of recognizing age as another season of life whether you're a child, young adult, or senior. Kathryn's adventure, "a mystery wrapped in an enigma," is a sweet reminder that everyone has hopes, dreams and disappointments, and that we all look for love, irrespective of age, because it's never too late to make a difference in someone's life.
"In this ageless story of miracles, adventure, suspense, and intrigue, Classen keeps the reader guessing until the last page. The excellent plot and realistic characters shows the strength of this author's writing. Everyone will enjoy it, but seniors will love it. I look forward to more books by Classen."
