I was given an advanced reader's copy of Grateful American by the publisher with the promise to read it and offer an honest review. I can't give this book anything less than five stars. I would challenge anyone to read it and not be changed by the honesty and integrity of the author. Sinise's life is proof that one man can make a difference. I don't usually read biographies, but I knew this was much more than the average biography. It is entertaining and funny at times. Then it is serious and heartbreaking at other times. But what struck me the most is the quiet spirituality that carries you along. There is reverence in the pages of the book that slowly brings you through the author's conversion. And the final pages of the book leave you with a lasting hope.
