A Good Book

Here are some reflections on what makes a good book from Ana Braga-Henebry. To quote:
Our road towards Virtue, and ultimately heaven, is not an easy one. A good book needs to portray that as a worthwhile fight! Throughout the stories sin may happen, but a good book should take readers beyond that: it should always help us in the great objective of this life. Our heart rests in God. For Him we yearn, many times unknowingly. A book that brings us closer to Him by great writing, imaginative plot and virtuous examples, as does a great work of art, causes a deep, inner satisfaction that is God-given.
