Croston writes warmly about the power within us to heal and the power of hope, and the power to help others to heal. Gifts from the Train Station is a book of stories, very private stories. Thankfully, Croston is a terrific story teller, he puts his speakers at ease, and gets them to talk about their very personal experiences, some being told for the first time in print. The book's subject matter is heavily focused on second chances, new starts. Like a stone tossed in a pond, rings of circles moving out from one's self- center to touching the lives and helping others with their self-centers.
Gifts from the Train Station is inspired by Glenn Croston personal and close relationship with Rob Meadows, PhD (one of the book editors), and his battle with leukemia. The14 stories in the book runs the gamut from sadden heart-driven, uplifting, profound, but mostly, they are stories of love and moving forward despite tragedies. Its a gift of love.
Mel Brake from the Philadelphia area is one of the features who was interviewed for this most incredible book.
