Item Description...
In this eloquent memoir, one of today's most admired spiritual writers shares a story from the heart. In the long winter of 1937, as World War II approached, Phyllis Tickle's father began to crochet a rosette coverlet, and he did not stop until the war was over. This simple act became a tangible prayer and a symbol of hope that would shape and inform Phyllis's faith and writing for years to come.

More About Phyllis Tickle

Phyllis Tickle PHYLLIS TICKLE, founding editor of the Religion Department of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, the international journal of the book industry, is frequently quoted in print sources, electronic media, and innumerable blogs and web sites. Tickle is an authority on religion in America and a much sought after lecturer on the subject.

In September 1996 she received the Mays Award, one of the book industry’s most prestigious awards for lifetime achievement in writing and publishing, and specifically in recognition of her work in gaining mainstream media coverage of religion publishing.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
We can always do something  Dec 3, 2003
What a timely book.
It's the perfect inspiration for all of us who ask "but what can I do?" as we watch our soldiers go off to foreign lands - and especially now, with so many loved ones so far away.
Phyllis Tickle gives us all a great gift in sharing this story of how her father "fought the war" in his own way. What an example he gave her of how there is ALWAYS something we can do - no matter how "small" it feels to us!
Not to mention it's an easy read - and moving. Like you're sitting in Phyllis' living room listening to her tell the story. I loved it!
Definitely a Christmas gift consideration!
(I saw it actually in Southern Living December issue - they suggested it for Christmas!)
