I grabbed this book off of a free bookshelf at my old job because I really enjoyed The Poisonwood Bible. This is a book of essays from Now or Never. In these essays she talks about her life in so many areas. She mentions her childhood, her being a mother, and struggles of both. She discusses spirituality, love of nature, different cultures and appreciating our world. I especially liked the essay on novels and the importance of them. I learned things about Africa. She made me think about parenting. It was interesting reading about her tour of a Titan Missile silo in Arizona where my father once worked. I am so glad I picked this book up and do plan on reading more of her work.
