The Plain Choice
The Plain Choice
by Sherry Gore
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A disco girl's pilgramage to Amish spirituality, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Plain Choice (Paperback)
The confused life of Sherry Gore takes gradual shape and meaning through her search for a 'plain' (Amish/Mennonite/Anabaptist) lifestyle. Christians of other traditions will find more questions to ask than questions that are answered. Such as is she going towards the Amish or is she running away from a world in which she does not cope? There are also some really serious questions that need to be asked about Amish authority over the lives of other members of their community. And indeed Amish theology seems to be one of those theologies where faith is not enough - there needs to be faith plus no electricity, faith plus lack of education, faith plus no car - in that way this little book may make people think about how they define Christianity and that is good. I think this book gives some insight into a community that is different so again that is good. Where it really does well is in the telling of the deep suffering that Sherry Gore and her family go though and in some of the later passages your heart will go out to her.


Oy Vey My Son Is Gay
Oy Vey My Son Is Gay

4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny in places - but also has a heart and a message, 29 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Funny movie about a Jewish mother whose son is gay and how she moves from denial to outright support. After watching this movie fifty per cent of the prime recommendations that I RECIEVED WERE FOR GAY FILMS. I am not gay, I am not Jewish, I am not a mother. But, I enjoyed this film. Afterwards I saw an episode of Walking Dead, just to keep prime informed, I am not Dead, I am not a zombie.

Hidden Spring: A Buddhist Woman Confronts Cancer
Hidden Spring: A Buddhist Woman Confronts Cancer
by Sandy Boucher
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.91

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, moving and educating..., 29 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a book worth reading - it did take me some time to get into the author's thinking but as I began to understand she took me on her journey. In terms of treatment and her relationships she tells things as they are. It did make me feel concern for those people who go through cancer without the deep support network that she has. However, her practise in Buddhism also gives her a unique way of looking at her progress through the illness. It is, in the end, one of those books that ahs made me a little bit of a better person for having read it. For that I thank the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for young poets that is true, 29 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Write... Poems (Paperback)
If I were clever which I am not,
My review would rhyme and be quite hot.
But as I'm thick and getting old,
My review is rather weak and cold.
Good for young poets that is true,
But I am 60 and far from new.
Young people will like it quite a lot,
And that is why four stars it got.
