Hardcover. 212 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 0.9in.Not too Late to Weep is the story of a boy who faces unsurmountable trials as he grows into manhood and yet somehow manages to overcome them without tears. It is not until he is in his sixties that he begins to face them as though for the first time. This brings a flood of memories with abubdant tears and he cries: Oh God, my loss is greater then I can bear. He faces these failures and successes honestly, and without reservation, and lets the written pages record the beautiful and the ugly, the gains and the losses, and the unforgivness and the forgiven. Weakened by kidney disease the boy, and later the man, tries to compete in a world that is unrivaled and alien to him and feels he is inadequate in every trial. Come along with him as he shares the adventures of a boy constantly reaching for the next greater rush or to reach for something that is continually out of reach. And as a man finds he cannot hold on to his dream and watches it sift through his fingers like flour through a sieve. And yet the latter years are better than the former as inner-healing takes place.
