|Paperwhites! Thanks to dd for thinking of this last November.|
And here are some more for you. (Thank you, Erika, for the timely request!)
An Easter story by Elizabeth Yates will probably only be appreciated by Yates fans. I really like the poetry selections at the end. The story itself is a bit...clunky...but I liked it and felt like Yates herself was telling me her views on Easter.
A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows through Loss by Jerry Sittser is one of the few books I've read on suffering. Sittser lost his mother, wife, and daughter in one horrific accident. An easy, thoughtful read that manages to bring up all the big questions. Helpful for understanding any type of loss. Highly recommend. (Thanks, Karen.)
Bread and Wine: Readings for Lent and Easter has so many wonderful writings by so many inspiring writers. I love this sort of book. I read it for myself but end up sharing with everyone.
Lent and Easter Wisdom from G.K. Chesterton: Daily Scripture and Prayers Together with G.K. Chesterton's Own Words (Lent & Easter Wisdom) is a new one for me this year. I really don't think you could go wrong here.
