Book Tour: A Worthy Legacy by Tomi

Last May I reviewed the book A Worthy Legacy and now it's on tour!! This book is a collection of thoughts and ideas that were given to the author by her grandfather on his deathbed. My full review is here, but I wanted to include my final thoughts:
What I am appreciating, now that I am letting his thoughts mull around in my mind, is that he and I, two completely different people who have led absolutely different lives on opposite sides of this planet - we believe the same things about how to live a good life. This elderly gentleman who grew up in a Nigerian village wanted to teach his children the same things that I want to teach mine. His simple words never startled me or surprised me - the writing is not lyrical or jubilant or complex. You merely come away from the book knowing that Tomi's grandfather left this life knowing what was worth caring about - and that if we read closely, we might be tempted to look for that same knowledge ourselves.
Please take a look at some of the other reviews out there! The next stop in the tour is at Lost in Books.

Your final thoughts are beautiful and serve as a reminder that throughout the world, most people are the same.
