Journal Entry 1 by ukcanaus from Melbourne, Victoria Australia on Thursday, January 05, 2012

9 out of 10

One of the most beloved of modern classics returns with a beautiful new cover. The enchanting story of two unlikely friends, a black ex-GI and the head of a group of German nuns, The Lilies of the Field tells the story of their impossible dream--to build a chapel in the desert.

This is one of my favourite books (the movie is one of my favourites as well). I like the simplicity of the story, and the humour in it too.

This copy will be offered as a bookring today.

A nice little book about little miracles. One can do anything if he have faith. Thank you for sharing this book with us, though this wasn't really my kind of book. I'll mail this forward next week.

I loved this fairy tale and if the church does exist I'll be sure to visit it if life takes me there.

The book has arrived safely and I started to read it straight away .... because I have no self control. Really I need to be reading the other books first as all the library books that I requested have come in together ... plus I am sitting on another ring ... so far behind. This one has been a gorgeous read so far. Thanks heaps!! :)

I apologize for keeping the book so long. The small book had slipped out of sight. But now I have read it, and it is was well worth reading. It is a book full of hope, faith and courage. I really liked at and can recommend it! It is an easy read, I finished it in one evening - with a smile.
The book is now in a Bookring, moving on to Travelina next.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This was a nice little book with humor and hope. I will pas it on to Tuttasb because I have another book to send her as well, and have asked Haugtussa to switch Widwolverine and Tuttasb in the order of the bookring.

Correction 10.3.2015: Tuttasb has not responden on PM or facebook. I will therefore pass this book on to Wildwolverine instead.

It's a sweet story, but that is about it. I didn't get taken by it as many others who have read it seems to be. It is nicely written, and i get a feeling the author tries to be a little bit Steinbeck (simple story, big meaning), but no one does Steinbeck better than Steinbeck, so ...

I'll send it of as soon as i get the address from Lesehest.
