Trust the journey-everything happens for a reason. Those words, said to James Hemingway after his divorce, sting. What stings more is that Hemingway's stuck at a run-down rental cabin after his wife gets half of his savings. Things can't get much worse. In the direst of times, Hemingway takes comfort in his conversations with Tex, the straight-talking World War II veteran renting out the cabin. He begins to realize that he isn't questioning life. Rather, life is questioning him. How he answers slowly changes as he finds real friends, enjoys a few wild adventures, and discovers a kind of peace that he hadn't known before. Hemingway-a man with a name similar to a great writer-rewrites his own life story with a happier ending. As he does, he begins to experience these truths on an unexpected spiritual journey that shows him, what's for you shall not pass. If you've ever loved and lost, pour yourself a cup of coffee, grab this book, and accompany Hemingway on the boulevard of life.
