The Wise Woman from Tekoa by Lynne Robinson

"Journey with the wise woman from Tekoa as she returns from Jerusalem to her home. The holy gift of wisdom enables her to change the lives of 12 people she meets along the way - one for each of the tribes of Israel. The healing words she speaks to each of them and her deep insights have a life-long effect on these people as well as on her, as she experiences the deep joy that comes from being used by the Holy One to make a difference in the lives of others."

Stories have the power to change lives. This one was written with that in mind. It is filled with nuggets, wisdom and moments of truth and illumination.

The author has a beautiful way of capturing the beauty and the grace of the wisdom and meaning in everyday situations.

The power of connection with God and each other cannot be underestimated, and this shows that in a unique and special way.

It's also, at 80 pages, a a very easy read.
