William David writes in an economical style, conveying the extraordinary nature of the early childhood years. He captures childhood experiences, where the child has many first-time encounters and feels the joy of surprise in a world of daily adventure. The story unfolds around the life of a little boy caught up in the controlling influence of circumstances involving his parents and extended family, which culminates in the loss of all that he holds dear. A gradual and increasingly longer separation from his mother begins at three, until at five he suddenly is removed far away. In this story of undying hope, a little boy determines to endure his circumstances, and accepting his fate, learns the value of compassion, wisdom, and humility. He chooses to have faith in God, while accepting the ambiguity and ultimate mystery of life and existence. Sadness at times and loss may be inescapable in life, but the benefit at any age is priceless strength and endurance.In his bed room he first goes out the double French~doors to the enclosed porch, as he usually does every night. ... into bed, Aunt Annie come in from the hallway, as usual, just as the time she hears her husband and Jimmy say, aquot;Amen.aquot; Aunt Annie kisses him on his forehead and says, Goodnight, Jimmy; sleep tight.
