On a summer's day but always leading to a God not worrying about changing or chastising his broken children but singing in a low guttural hum forged in the heat of his passion for humans a God almighty love song Just like a sweet old hymn can rekindle even a doubting cynic's longing for God Madeira's beckoning voice can turn a wandering heart toward home with laughter and hope. I love his transparency and the uality of his writing He invites the reader into his life journey and takes you fully into the good and bad times He does not come to a neat conclusion and tie up lose ends He reflects real life Throughout there is a thread of faith that is sometimes vibrant and sometimes bare embers I found his thinking challenging and insightful His descriptive ability is truly outstanding As someone who grew up in RI I was amazed at his ability to clearly articulate things that for me were only subliminal A great read
