Reading the last book of my beloved Eric Jerome Dickey… who I met once and always had such great respect for his writing skills he could really draw you into his characters. This is the 29 book. You are greatly missed!

It's 1913, and on the surface, Laura Lyons couldn't ask for more out of life—her husband is the superintendent of the New York Public Library, allowing their family to live in an apartment within the grand building, and they are blessed with two children. But headstrong, passionate Laura wants more, and when she takes a leap of faith and applies to the Columbia Journalism School.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👏🏽👏🏽Wonderful historical fiction!!

This book right here👉🏽 Nobody escapes being wounded. We all are wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not “How can we hide our wounds?” so we don‘t have to be embarrassed, but “How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?” When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers. Jesus is God‘s wounded healer...

“What made King special was an unshakeable faith, rooted in his belief in God‘s purposes, that racism did not have to be the final sentence in the book of the American story.”
