Traveler's Gift

I finished this book over the weekend. I especially liked the story of Chamberlain, the Union Soldier at Gettysburg, as he is a famous figure in "modern" Maine history. I'm not a believer in the theory that you are protected until your work is done though and a few of his other points also do not fit with my personal philosophy, but still a good motivating read! Thanks for the recommendation, Mom & Dad and Mary!
