With humor and a gift for storytelling, Billy Coffey brings you along as he spends his snow day encountering family, friends, and strangers of his small Virginia town. All have had their own battles with life's storms. Some have found redemption. Others are still seeking it. But each one offers a piece to the puzzle of why we must sometimes suffer loss, and each one will help Peter find a greater truth--our lives are made beautiful not by our big moments, but our little ones.
The narrator in this delightful book is Peter Boyd, and the plot is about one day in his life. He represents Everyman, someone with whom we can all connect.
Each chapter can stand on its own and yet is an individual gem strung together into a frame story that ends up a stunning necklace of a tale. Each one of these pearls of wisdom should be read over and over again. Included is a trip to a grocery store where Peter learns life's lessons taught by examples from the people he encounters. We witness Peter as he plays with his children, interacts with his wife, and fills out a job application. During this time, he reflects on his life's goals.
I think this would make a wonderful Christmas gift.
