From the bestselling author of "Kitchen Table Wisdom" comes a book that will wrap the warmth of a wise grandfather's love and the blessings of life around every reader. As a small child, Remen sat at the feet of her grandfather, an orthodox rabbi and scholar of the kabbalah, and learned the secret of life that she now shares: that love and blessings given to others heals our loneliness, unhappiness, and in fact all our wounds.
