I came across this book when I was searching online for information about some religious historical sites in the eastern United States. Lori Erickson‘s reviews of these places were so thoughtful and descriptive that I was immediately taken in and had to know more about her. I’ve visited her website and spent several hours reading the reviews of the many places she and Bob have visited.When I saw that Holy Rover was on Audible, I was eager to listen to it, and I was not disappointed. A perfect combination of spirituality, religion and religious history, with a healthy dose of travel, discovery and wanderlust, I kept thinking over and over again “I want to take Lori everywhere I go!”
Beth Chaplain’s narration is superb, and I feel like she caught the nuance of Lori‘s deep felt spiritual discoveries and in turn her sense of humor, including her occasional bouts of sarcasm and self depreciation. I am so happy that I discovered Holy Rover, and feel that it would be a worthwhile read for anyone with any type of belief, (or even non-belief!), background. Lori is very honest, and discloses not only her feelings of faith, but also feelings of doubt. What I love best about her musings and her writings, is her deep desire to find the connectedness between different religions and faith-traditions, no matter who or what the belief is. Although a Christian, I am grateful for what I learned about several non-Christian traditions, and how much we all really have in common.
I only wish that it were longer. Knowing that I will most likely never make it to many of the places Lori explores and shares, I only wish that I could take more spiritual pilgrimages with her, even if it is only through the printed word.
