WALKING WITH HENRY

This was an enjoyable book.  You feel for Rachel, the author, with all she goes through with the donkeys.  At first I was put out with this book because you have the story of the donkeys and then she goes into the lesson she learned in life from them.  I then warmed up to this because her life lessons were very interesting and sometimes clicked with what I had gone through in life.  I was not impressed with the Common Book prayers, but I was not brought up on them.  That was just me, so that is why I rated it a 4 instead of a 5.  This book will make you laugh and cry.  Enjoyable.

Just when you think it’s the end of your story . . . grace shows up.

Sometimes it arrives as a moment of joy in the middle of despair. Sometimes you find it next to a trusted friend along an old, well-trodden path. And sometimes, grace has fuzzy ears, a bristled mane, and hope for a new start.

Join Rachel Anne Ridge, author of the beloved memoir Flash, in a journey back to the pasture. As she adopts a second rescue donkey as a little brother for Flash―a miniature named Henry―she finds that walking with donkeys has surprising lessons to teach us about prayer, renewing our faith, and connecting to God in fresh ways.

Readers all over the world fell in love with Flash and with Rachel’s thoughtful, funny, and poignant stories about what life with a donkey can teach you. Now, meet Henry and join him on a walk that could change everything about how you hope, trust, and move forward from past regrets.

Rachel Anne Ridge is an artist and writer in Texas. Together with her husband, Tom, she bootstrapped her way through the Great Recession, raised three kids, and rediscovered God in the midst of the everyday juggle of life. Her blog, HomeSanctuary.com, helps women around the world find beauty and faith in the unexpected, and often unappreciated, moments life brings. Rachel’s Book, Flash, The Homeless Donkey Who Taught Me About Life, Faith, and Second Chances, reveals how God uses ordinary, sometimes humorous means to help us see Him—and to change our lives forever. She is now a Nana to 5 littles, and has two adopted donkeys.

Flash (the book) has been optioned as a movie by PureFlix Studios.

Walking With Henry became available for sale March 5, 2019.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for this review.
