The Book of Sorrows Just Crushed My Soul
Good grief. I got dehydrated by frequent water loss from the face for the entirety of this book's 339 pages to the point that I felt I should mention it here, as I haven't met anyone else who's read it. This is the follow up to Wangerin Jr.'s Book of the Dun Cow, which is also quite good (and necessary to understanding this book), but doesn't rival the power of the waves of raw emotion rolling from The Book of Sorrows. That was only two sentences. Sorry.
As far as spiritual truth coming from a work of fiction, this is the best I've read.
