Late Train to Galilee is an engrossing narrative of the kind of grace that happens in odd, broken places: a memoir that documents the tearing down and refashioning of the spirit and the redemptive nature of pain when one looks for its meaning. It is also a simple story of one woman’s struggle to navigate the wreckage that death, bankruptcy, dark family secrets and broken dreams leave behind. A very personal account of tears and miracles, of deserts and valleys. And ultimately, a quest for beauty and meaning in the most unexpected places.
