This was a most interesting read [Sister Jane]. After the first few chapters, I thought I knew where it was heading. Instead, I enjoyed several twists and turns that made for a very delightful read and ... I might add... a thought-provoking one. Great book. Can't help but wonder if there would be a follow-up!?!
Irmgarde Brown has written a wonderful book full of quirky characters, plot twists, and a story that is difficult to put down. No matter what you think of "faith healers" or people of faith, this story will hold your interest until the last page. There is no judgment here, just a lot to think about in a very entertaining way.
The challenges of having a gift Reviewed in the United States on May 8, 2022 Verified Purchase of Sister Jane's Lenten Journal Those who commit to their gifts face a host of unexpected and often unexplained challenges. Finding meaning in those challenges is a most human of activities. In this little book, Irmgarde Brown explores how the words of people who lived millennia ago might enlighten those with gifts today. One answer is to look at the population of believers, which reveals a decline among Americans who believe so combined with slight pandemic-induced reversal. This suggests that adversity promotes faith more than denial. Brown offers a much more detailed answer by using the ancient Lenten story to imagine a modern but supernaturally gifted life. Some readers will use her imaginations to help explain their challenges. Others will anticipate a new Brown work where the gift is closer to our modern experience. In both cases Sister Jane’s Lenten Journal is a quick, pleasant read.
