Reflections at Eventide: A Grandfather Shares His Story with His Grandchildren
Many people intend to leave footprints in the sands of time to enable those who follow to have some idea from whence they came. But then time passes, and oftentimes this kind of extended journal remains unwritten. Eugene Friesen wrote Reflections at Eventide because he wanted his children and his children’s children to follow the unexpected twists and turns his life has taken, starting with a very provincial and conservative rural background. He shares some of the turning points, often lonely and frightening, that result in what seems like cataclysmic changes in his world view. Leta, his wife of sixty-two years, was his major anchor. She had a powerful impact on his life and he chose a most unpredictable path leading to a journey he could never have anticipated.
