I admit that I'm simply not someone who knows a whit about fishing - especially fly fishing. There is a lot about the art and skill and actions involved in fly fishing. The writer uses this quite aptly and ingeniously as a descriptive tool that digs deep into the emotion, spiritual, and physical angst of the time and place.
Well written and worth sharing with friends. Caution though..... there is a lot of anger on the part of the teen daughter as she lashes out at her mother and father, against life in general, and especially against all things religious.
This is a clean read and one I can easily recommend to my readers. A short 116 pages rich in wisdom.
About the book: ... a story about a father and his seventeen-year-old daughter. He is a missionary; she is a problem.
Together they go camping and fly fishing in the Ozarks. Together they clash and argue.
Then one cold, October morning as they fly fished beside the pure water of the stream, together they learned something about grace.
For the tears of a father ... are as the tears of God ... that fall silently and caress the one beloved, much as the autumn leaves that gently fall and kiss the stream.
