Alan Jacobs Likes ‘Little Way’
“People will tell you that The Little Way of Ruthie Leming is a tearjerker, and it is — boy, is it — but more than that it’s a thought-provoker. Rod Dreher tells a tale of dear things lost and dear things restored, but also, and unflinchingly, confronts some harder truths about old wounds that never fully heal and old misunderstandings that won’t quite go away. This is a book that strives for truth more than beauty — and is all the more beautiful for it.” — Alan Jacobs, professor of literature, Wheaton College, and author of “The Pleasures Of Reading In An Age Of Distraction”
Thank you, Alan!
