I love to read. I love it all the more when a truth touches my heart. I have just finished “The Museum of Extraordinary Things” by Alice Hoffman. This inspiring piece of historical fiction is New York City in 1911. Two fires frame the book, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and the Dreamland Fire. While some of the characters really did exist, the main characters are fiction.
My “ah-ha” moment came on page 230, the dialog between Ed Cohen and the liveryman.
“…I thought of your allegiance to God…you’d have to pay when you come before Him…”I’m before him now,” the liveryman said solemnly, “I’ve come to understand I’m before him each and every minute.”
