At the end of the book, you, the reader, just kind of knows that things will work out for him. I wished that there was more to the book, showing the next steps in his life, but like I said you have the feeling all will be good for Joe. Good book & would recommend it. It is on like 4 people's WL at PBS, so I will probably list it. I was thinking about keeping it but figure it would be best to share this book with others that are waiting for it.
Ivan E Coyote, the author, is one that I will be looking for other books by her. The ease of reading this book very much reminded me of the Poe Ballantine books I have read. Ivan has also written short stories as well and will probably have to check these out if I can find them.
