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