As someone who grew up in the intentional community Peterson writes about, and thus a "misfit" myself, I found reading this book to be an intense and deeply healing, if not mystical, experience. Christiana's ability to beautifully weave together her own poignant experience-with all the joys, sorrows, and challenges-of intentional Christian living at Plow Creek Fellowship with those of saints, mystics and "misfits" powerfully ministered to me. As I read her intimate and insightful reflections, I felt that I was journeying with her as she witnessed the last chapters of our shared family (Plow Creek members) and home (Plow Creek Farm). And, despite knowing how the journey at the intentional community ended for her, I found I could not put this book down! I yearned to hear more, to find out how her journey ended, and how it all affected her in the end. I laughed and cried with her and, ultimately, found healing with her as she reflected her thoughts in the last chapter and affirmed my own experience as a "misfit" in the "normal" world.
