Why Not Try God? is ultimately a cheerful work, a short, effective essay on why we should believe, and how such belief can become a positive influence that will help us meet our daily challenges and affect our lives and the lives of those around us for the better. Pickford's positive approach gives anyone, believer or non-believer, a rationale on which to build faith, and a path to understanding the difficulties we face in life.
My Rendezvous with Life presents Mary Pickford's thoughts on what it is to lose a loved one, and why she believes that there is an afterlife in which we may be reunited with those we have lost. It is a non-denominational approach, and one that displays great care and understanding of the enduring ache that people feel when they experience the death of a loved one. My Rendezvous with Life is a hopeful, comforting book about challenges we all have to face in this journey that is our lives.
