Good news from Hawthorne Publishers!

Here is a book you won't put down. Dave Horn served the Christian Science movement in several capacities for fifty years. While working as a security guard for The Mother Church, he was night watchman at Mary Baker Eddy's Chestnut Hill home. After more than a decade on the staff of The Christian Science Monitor, he served as Administrator of Midland House in Indianapolis, and later as Committee on Publication for Indiana and North Carolina consecutively. This is his story, the product of a gifted writer, told with verve, skill and humor.

Dave's life stories show divine fingerprints on his activities, and on the lives of those he touched. Memoir settings range from childhood summers at Camp Elektor where he learned to let his light shine, to Boston in the days when the Monitor Youth Forum sponsored a highly successful event featuring Alan Young, of TV show "Mister Ed" fame, to protection in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam era. The book is honest and self-revealing. Discouragement over two failed marriages; then joy at finding the right lifetime companion and becoming a "househusband" caring for young step-daughters. Stints reporting for two Hoosier newspapers; friendships with the Amish in northern Indiana, and the joy of helping others find healing through the full-time practice of Christian Science -- all are here.

Hawthorne Publishing is proud to add this book to its Winds of Change spiritual directions division. 150pp. softbound, $15.00 (plus $5 shipping for first copy, and $3 shipping for each additional copy). To order, call 317-340-8948 or 317-867-5183. No need for a credit card. Your book will arrive in the mail with an invoice.
