Favourite Heroes and Holy PeopleMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
In this inspiring book, Lady Cassidi has approached an extraordinary range of people - men, women and children - and asked them to select just one person who is either a hero or heroine of theirs or an inspiring holy person.
To read through or to dip into, this is a treasure trove of personal choices and stories from many diverse people. We learn so much from their Favourite Heroes and Holy People but also from the words of the choosers. Children and adults from many walks of life collected together in the Anthology to give many happy hours of reading. I have only dipped into the contents and know I have yet to discover more jewels. Some raise a smile, some a tear, all are worth pondering upon.
