An anthology of fifty inspirational stories shares messages of compassion, determination, comfort, and joy designed to transform and enrich the lives of readers.
When life gets tough, sometimes a warm drink and a good book are the only solution. A Cup of Comfort supplies both in one: stories of just a few pages each that will leave you feeling as refreshed as if you've just sipped a cup of tea, and entirely caught up in the moments described by the stories. Small enough to tuck into a purse or coat pocket, this is the perfect book for your daily commute or coffee break. Recurring themes of generosity, compassion, and mysterious blessings are the only thing the stories have in common, as each is written by a different author in an entirely different style. While many of them focus on a particular event such as a holiday, a wedding, or a death, there are plenty that reveal the larger lessons and surprises in a walk to the store or a parent-teacher conference. If you're searching for a bit of encouragement and a reminder of humanity's positive side, you're sure to find a treasure or two in this wise little book. --Jill Lightner
