While I can't say this account isn't interesting, what I can say is that is wasn't particularly interesting to me. A friend's husband recommended this book to me and even went so far as to provide me with a copy. All I can do is ask, "Why?" While I found some parts better than others, nothing ever caught fire for me; no real sparks ignited. Perhaps this is a book I would have appreciated more at a different time, different place, but for now, all I can say is that I really did not get into this book. If there was a larger spiritual lesson to be learned, it went right by me.
