“I have enjoyed them very much… The characters are so well developed and their spiritual enlightenment so thoughtfully delineated that it is most difficult to pause in reading them. There is also a personal challenge to recognize in your own pilgrimage the importance of your inheritance. Thank you very much for such encouragement.”
