"This is the kind of book that, having read it, you'll want to travel a thousand miles to meet the author. It should be kept forever handy for instant rereading when the spirit is down." -John Frasca, Pulitzer Prize winner The theme of this book is joy. The characters, whether famous or ordinary, have at least one thing in common-they have inspired others through acts of faith, hope, and love. Here, one can read stories about people like Corrie ten Boom and other fascinating individuals. Velma Seawell Daniels tells of how the many people she has known have affected her life by the way they lived their own lives. Pelican's Patches of Joy will replenish your soul.
