Placemaker by Christie Purifoy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
There is an idea that when we create a place for people, in our lives, communities, or at our table, we give them space to heal and become. I thought this book was about that. This book is 18 pages of spiritual applications and 200 pages about trees. If you love reading about random facts about where people lived and the trees that were near them, this is for you. I was hoping to see more about people than trees and I was disappointed.

I picked up this book because I am a huge proponent of giving place to people. The idea is that when we give a place at our table, in our community, and in our lives, we give people a space to heal and become. I thought this book would be about that. Well. It was a book mostly about trees and the trees and countertops in the places this woman lived. There were rare awkward glimpses and beauty and loving people. There were not enough to justify all the tree talk however. I only gleaned a few sentences. I hate to say it, but I met a book I didn’t like. #books #bookreview #book #📚
