"Waiting On' Wednesday"

About Seeing Things by Patti Hill:

Birdie Wainwright, 72, isn’t concerned about seeing things that others can’t. For a woman who still climbs mountains with her dog (Miss Bee Haven) and likes to tango, the impractical visions brought on by macular degeneration are just another gift from God, adding more adventure to life. But when a tumble down the stairs breaks her ankle and leads back to her son’s home in Denver where she must convalesce, Birdie’s imagination really takes flight. Following a conversation with her grandson about The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, she begins to see and speak with the unkempt literary character himself on a regular basis. As the line between reality and whimsy turns brittle, faith is tested among friends and loved ones, and hope is reborn.

Seeing Things is a story about family, reconciliation, and hearing from God in unexpected ways.

Coming in September from B&H Publishing.

The book sounds good, but I don't think I like the cover too much. Looks like the character is hanging from a tree. Morbid uh? Too much suspense reading right?

CeeCee, you gave me a laugh. :)

I'm assuming the barefooted character in the tree ties to the Huckleberry Finn element in the book.
