This book was a pleasant surprise to me. The author wove a rare story
featuring a wise fisherman. As people pass by and converse with the
fisherman (Gaff), they are surprised to find him not only friendly, but
having some surprising insights to their particular personal situations.
The successful marriage of both spirituality and psychology
continued to make me smile throughout the book. The flow of the book
made it such an easy read, and it's easy to see a little of each of us
in the various people he connects with as they stop to sit on his much
used ice chest.
Looking for a pleasant, light read? Check out Gaff, and like me, I think you too will be pleasantly surprised.Robert McBeath (La Grange, KY USA)
This wise book, by psychologist and author, Dr. Lorena Peter, skillfully
weaves a rich tapestry of stories told by those walking a North
Carolina beach who are drawn to and spiritually transformed by their
interactions with the charismatic old fisherman, Gaff, with his
psychic/spiritual connections to Mother Water. Through Gaff's patience
and infinite understanding of the human heart, the deepest truths are
drawn out of those who stop to sit on his cooler and tell him their
stories. The life lessons learned linger long in the reader's higher
mind, illuminating there the secrets of the soul. This is a beautiful
little book, one worthy of a wide audience.
