A Personal Yet Eternal Journey

(4.5 stars)

It is a hard journey for many Converts, and the end of that journey is but the beginning of another. Parts of this will seem odd to modern ears, and familiar to others. It is an adventure tale set in the spiritual. Am off to listen to his novel, which I saw on here previously.

an astonishing search for truth
