We all love journey stories, especially those that tell us how someone got to where they are and those that remind us of our own journeys.

I’m having a crisis of literature. For the second month in a row, I am reviewing a book by a non-Catholic pastor. This one, “A Second Day: a Hopeful Journey Out of Suicidal Thinking,” by Fe Anam Avis.
