I was absolutely taken by this story. T.C. Booth does an incredible job of taking readers on a meaningful journey of life and death. Eloquently written, Beyond Vica will make you laugh and cry, but most importantly it will touch your heart and open your eyes to what really matters.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
