Song of the Second Wind (Hardcover)
|Author: Samuel Stillmore|
|He grew up in a hopeful time. But lately, Jesse hasn''t been feeling too hopeful. Once he was young and unwavering. He searched for things that were lasting and true. But somewhere along the line he had given up the chase. Maybe he was too old for it now. Or maybe it was time for a second try.|
Jesse is at work on the morning of his fifty-second birthday when he receives an unexpected email from a long-lost friend that sends him slipping out the back door of his office building without a word to anyone.
In this lyrical tale of renewal, Jesse retraces the paths of his youthful wandering from the deserts of Tucson, to the hills of San Francisco, and back to his hometown in Kansas. Along the way he rediscovers many of the beliefs that were once essential to him, and finds once more the possibility of wonder. "Song of the Second Wind" is the story of one man''s journey to a new understanding.
