A True Story of a Very Special Friendship
This is one of my all-time favorite books – a story that warms your heart as it awakens you to look at the world in a way that allows the spirit to pour through what you see.
Anna was a four year old, neglected and roaming the streets along London’s docks during the 1930′s. Flynn found her when he was out for a late-night stroll. He took her back to his mother’s home, where he discovered that this delightful child could penetrate into the truth of anything she encountered. Anna had an astonishing ability to ask – and answer – life’s largest questions, to get to the heart of any matter. Her total openness and honesty amazed all who knew her. She seemed to understand with uncanny certainty the purpose of being, the essence of feeling, the beauty of love.
This is a book I return to again and again – it’s simply wonderful each and every time.
