Looking for Lydia; Looking for God


Product Description
Product Details


"A delicious read." -Adam Sachs, Editor in Chief of Saveur magazine. "Storytelling at its finest." -Susan Reigler, author, Kentucky Bourbon Country and The Complete Guide to Kentucky State Parks "A delicious read. Dean Robertson's Looking for Lydia; Looking for God tells the story of a journey-individual, historical and spiritual-through the post-Civil War South and the Bible studies that weave together the lives of a group of women at the Lydia H. Roper Home of Norfolk, Virginia. The result is an unusual and affecting tale of aging, community and personal obsession." -Adam Sachs, Editor in Chief of Saveur magazine. "As I read Looking for Lydia I weep. I want to read this book again and again. It's a conversation happening on the page, with Lydia, with all readers and searchers who share life through the stories we share.", Academic Coach, Reading Consultant, Learning Assistance Professional at Aquinas College, Grand Rapids, MI, and Grand Rapids Public Schools "Storytelling at its finest. Dean Robertson uses the ancient stories of the Bible to inspire intellectual curiosity and reflection on their own life stories among a group of elderly southern women. Added to this is the tantalizing mystery of the historically elusive Lydia Roper for whom the women's retirement home is named." -Susan Reigler, author, Kentucky Bourbon Country and The Complete Guide to Kentucky State Parks "As a writer, an elder care giver, and a seeker of family stories, sharing this quest with Dean has been a glorious multi-faceted adventure. Readers will find that, whether they seek a lost relative or answers to Life's biggest questions, Looking for Lydia may lead them to find that exploring the questions can be as satisfying as finding the answers." -Molly Roper Jenkins, Great-granddaughter of Lydia Bowen Roper "Part biography, part biblical criticism, and part spiritual confession, Looking for Lydia; Looking for God is both an intensely personal narrative and an invitation to re-examine our collective soul. Humorous yet insightful, in this book, Robertson raises important questions of faith and meaning with her characteristic warmth and integrity. Perhaps, most importantly of all, it is a good read." -Aaron Brittain, Rector, Talbot Park Baptist Church, Norfolk, VA "A group of old ladies living together on the poorer side of health and finances, a few of whom aren't sure why it's Wednesday; a Bible study that encourages all the questions you thought you weren't allowed to ask, complete with compelling answers as dynamic as, well, Wednesday; and a grand old, southern house named for somebody called, of course, "Lydia." Does this sound exciting, yet? Ah, but it is! Dean rubs these unlikely things together with heart and depth and art and brings us to glorious life." -The Rev. Gary Barker, Rector, Kingston Parish, Mathews, VA"
