Show synopsis The popular Christian author of the Singer Trilogy, which has sold more than one million copies, skillfully weaves an inspiring tale-within-a-tale that explores the ageless themes of separation and reconciliation, ignorance and wisdom. Told in a simple, engaging style--yet rich with complex metaphor--Miller's newest offering keeps with his long tradition of marking spiritual truths compelling, deeply affecting, and utterly accessible. The carefully intertwined story of a mother and son left near destitute in 1931 Chicago by a father in search of work begins with 15 year-old Anton, who is suddenly paralyzed and beginning to doubt God's love. Hajji, a mysterious man, kindly takes Anton and his mother into his makeshift shelter. He comforts Anton with talk of the Seven Truths. In the morning, though, he is gone, along with Anton's mother's wedding ring. In its place he has left a magical little book, in which Anton will discover a story to give the Seven Truths meaning; a tale of a father and son, of the magnitude of God's love, and the power of true faith, generosity, and forgiveness.
