I found out about this book from my blog friend Jeanie. She wrote such a fantastic review of the book that I tracked it down at the library. I had to order it via inter-library loan. Which is just to say that I recommend that if you have to go to all of that trouble, you should!
In brief, this is a book written about volunteering at a thrift store by, Jane Knuth, a woman who did not plan on doing so. But she did, and she had such wonderful and uplifting experiences! The thrift store is run by the St. Vincent De Paul Society and is in Kalamazoo, Michigan and the book is all about her volunteer experience and really how the clients taught her about life and kindness.
I am a terrible book reviewer. When I find a book that I want everyone to read I simply say, "I loved it!!!!!!" This is a book I want everyone to read! I loved it!!!!
Here is a link to Jeanie's beautiful review about this book and here is a link to an article about the author. Here is a link to the book on Amazon if you don't have the patience to track it down through the library or if you would like to support the author.
