Kirkus Likes ‘Little Way’

Kirkus Reviews is out today with a positive notice for The Little Way Of Ruthie Leming.  The review is short, as are all of Kirkus’s reviews, and it’s behind a subscription paywall. Here’s how it ends, though:

Moved by his sister’s courageous battle and the stories of how Ruthie’s everyday acts of love had changed the lives of others, Dreher began the difficult process of humbly accepting “the limitations of place” to finally know “the joys that [could] also be found there.”

Emotionally complex and genuinely affecting.

 The first two reviews have been positive (Publishers Weekly link here). Onward and upward, let’s hope!
