Doreen Cox, proves she is a masterful story-teller in her novelette, A Sacred Journey. We follow Leah as she is protected and led through the forest by the spiritual insight and love of animals. In reading Ms. Cox’s story, I was transported by the love, joy, and honor that was shown to Leah, by those that are considered by some to be, ‘just animals.’ The connection between human and animal is deeply spiritual and sustaining, and it gave this reader a glimpse into the beauty that could be in this world. Although this journey had many different meanings that could be found that fit with the word sacred, to this reader it carried dual meanings. I can highly recommend this story to everyone who can believe in the possibility that life can be more.
