#22: Walking Across Egypt
What an interesting little book. Walking Across Egypt by Clyde Edgerton was a simple book with a thoughtful plot. The book is a story of an elderly woman named Mattie and her friendship with a juvenile delinquent named Wesley. Mattie is a Christian woman set in her ways and her routine until she met Wesley and her faith is challenged by what to do about him and how to love him. Should she invite him into her home or leave him to live the life full of bad decisions and sorrow that he has experienced for the past 16 years. I had no idea this book would even address Christianity and specifically the call to love the least. So that gave me something to think about. I did enjoy the book and it was fun to read. But, I'm most excited right now because while looking for a picture of the book to post I discovered it was made into a movie in '99 staring Jonathan Taylor Thomas.
