Review: Roots and Sky
"Roots and Sky" written by Christie Purifoy is an inspirational book of `A Journey Home in Four Seasons`. I was drawn to this book by its no-nonsense cover. Also by the representations of the four seasons. Unless otherwise noted any scripture used is from The Holy Bible (NIV).
The author examines the question, "Just how much heaven do we get to experience here on earth?" I would suggest this book is an allegory as Christie writes of her families first year at Maplehurst, an old Pennsylvania farmhouse. This book is also written as an inspirational for women.
Built in 1880, Maplehurst is a square red-brick farmhouse wrapped in a white-spindled porch (pg 13). The setting is intended to be real with a garden, a henhouse, and apple trees. The time is set in the present with bicycles, two-car garages, and new backyard decks, instead of a place where cattle graze. (pg 13)
I am sure anyone who enjoys prose would enjoy this 202-page book I also believe it's a beautifully written work of art that the average reader can appreciate.
