Sometimes you get done with a book and it reveals a little touch of faith, an empowering event of personhood and just a delightful breath of goodness that is told in a story about someone’s life, that is somewhat in all of life. Deborah Wiles is one to have captured such surety in this book.
A girl named Comfort with a dog named Dismay, who finds out just what life can challenge when a sniffling cousin named Peach who can annoy and take down just about any funeral service with snorting tears and somehow it ends in joy. Comfort finds friendship, loses friendship, loves friendship and ultimately gives friendship when she least desires. As a result she gains the understanding of true service. A family motto in the funeral business, ” We live to serve.”
I love this book. I hope you do too.
