A novel to stir the heart of the world

I have not suggested a novel here before, but now it is time. I have just finished Corbin Addison's The Garden of Burning Sand, and I would suggest it without reserve to anyone who loves stories of 1) real events; 2) layers of relationships;3) social justice struggles; 4) in an unfamiliar country; in this case, Zambia in Africa, with family links to the U.S, as well.

This story seems to contain everything to experience and stretch the reader. Here is one testimony: "If you like stories of good people struggling to do right in the world's forgotten places, theer is no one better suited to take you on the Ride of your Life." (John Hart: New York Times bestselling author.) I would agree wholeheartedly and gratefully. I am now going to look for this author's first book!

I like these very much. The spirals amid stars and land especially feel like pure whimsy and joy. Black paper and gel pens, you say?.....
