Black Coat With A Silver Lining

Yalian, Elizabeth.  Black Coat With A Silver Lining: A Homeless Man Finds Hope.  CreateSpace Publishing.  2014.

SUMMARY:
coatA former foster child, Nick finds himself living and barely surviving on the streets.   Homeless and desperate, Nick relishes an Italian dinner yet ends up stealing a car instead, perhaps the car belonging to a criminal.  When inner turmoil sets in, Nick is faced with decisions that could impact his future…and it all may hinge on a black coat…

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
I must admit this is not my usual genre of books yet I found it to be truly thought-provoking, humbling, educational and well-written.  Drawing attention to an often overlooked and ignored issue of homelessness, Elizabeth Yalian takes a sensitive approach through a page- turning fictional piece to make the reader consider it.  This book may work well for a church ministry group or even an introduction to a Bible study and/ or mission.  Elizabeth, thank-you for sharing your book with me as well as your compassion.

RATING:
4 (out of 5) pennies
