I laughed and wept as each chapter unfolded. This is truly a book about life's lessons.
A successful minister suddenly finds himself questioning life and the resulting confrontation between the Elders of the church and his congregation ends in a leave of absence which sends him on a journey of recovery. He meets wonderful people including a life long lost Uncle whilst following the trails of St Francis of Assisi thus the title.
Albeit a work of fiction it includes many actual events as well as historical facts. I was however surprised by the ending and therefore give it a 4 1/2 star rating.
