"Thoughtful and thought-provoking..." --USA Today "The Little Way of Ruthie Leming is Steel Magnolias for a new generation." -Sela Ward, Emmy Award-winning actress and author of Homesick Rod Dreher tells a tale of dear things lost and dear things restored, but also, and unflinchingly, confronts some harder truths about old wounds that never fully heal and old misunderstandings that won't quite go away. This is a book that strives for truth more than beauty-and is all the more beautiful for it. -Alan Jacobs, author of The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction This book will make you feel hunger pangs for what you didn't know you even missed. And then it will feed you, line upon line, soul bread. As the Israelites ate manna in the desert, Dreher's evocative prose gathers the unforgettable manna moments of Ruthie Leming's life. --Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are This is an authentic and deeply touching memoir, which honestly asks many of the best questions about the things that matter. Interacting with this story will change you! -- Wm. Paul Young, author of The Shack and Cross Roads Emotionally complex and genuinely affecting. -- Kirkus Reviews If you are not prepared to cry, to learn, and to have your heart cracked open even a little bit by a true story of love, surrender, sacrifice, and family, then please do not read this book. Otherwise, do your soul a favor, and listen carefully to the unforgettable lessons of Ruthie Leming. -- Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love If you've ever felt an outsider in your own family, you've got to read this book. If you have ever had any "sibling-issues" you've got to read this book. This true, powerful, deeply-moving, and masterfully-told story is nothing less than a gift. And yes, indeed: it will change lives. -- Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
