We Stood Upon Stars by Roger W. Thompson
I was about to go on a road trip when I saw this book pop up in my queue to review. I thought it would be a great thing to accompany me through a few states. It was a bit difficult to get into at first. I don't know if it was my mindset or what felt like choppy story telling. Never the less, I pressed on. The stories were pretty interesting, but I was rarely drawn deeply into them. There were several things I could connect with personally. Most of us can connect with loss. Roger shares about losing people he loves and why he loved them. He tells of how adventure connected them. His story is one of redemption. His grandparents ended up raising him. I think the main thing I took away from the book was to go on adventure and create memories.
*There are maps in the chapters of different states and things he loved there. That could be helpful if you are experiencing some wonder lust. Happy travels.
This book was graciously provided by Waterbrook Publishers for review.
