Like other writings by Henri Nouwen, The Road to Daybreak is touching, searching, and moves one's soul. Nouwen was sharing his struggles, weaknesses, his understanding of love so earnestly that I felt he was talking to me directly. He explains, openly and honestly, what it is like working with the handicapped, addressing their sensitivities, their love, and their freedom from pride.
