Peace at the Edge of Uncertainty by Neil Hanson Review & Giveaway

In this story told in the first-person form of a letter from a middle-aged man to his deceased father, Hanson invites us to journey with him through the final days of the father’s life, finding a magical transition waiting at the end of that journey. The story weaves end-of-life reality and spiritual questioning into a sensitive and revealing tapestry of Truth and Wisdom. The tapestry is colored with true stories of mystical experiences that inform the spiritual path of the son.

Most of us will face difficult and painful end-of-life decisions with the most important people in our lives. The threads of this aspect of the story are sensitive, and Hanson reveals the struggles and destinations of the son as he wrestles deeply with the journey that he must walk in making these decisions for his dying father.

A dying father and his son, who at his father's bedside, watches his father's soul as it is 'born' into another world - one of spirituality. He journey's with his father and discovers a mystical surprise. But also, growing up, he had mystical visions that he failed to share with his father. He takes a journey of not only the heart, but to find his way spiritually and to embrace it.

Eloquently written, Peace at the Edge of Uncertainty is odd in the way that G-d is never a fully formed word, letting the reader fill in their own word. The reasoning comes later in this inspiration book, but it made it more personal to this reader, preferring to fill in my own beliefs. A wonderful touch. Passionate, eloquent, inspirational and devotional, Peace at the Edge of Uncertainty is a wonderful companion novel for anyone on a spiritual quest or needing guidance.

Neil Hanson lives and works in Colorado. Peace at the Edge of Uncertainty is his first book. He blogs actively and writes articles for periodicals.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
