The breathtaking cover of “Treasures in Clay Vessels” had me wishing I were the one standing

beside the beautiful lighthouse on the shore gazing out at the rolling sea. The breathtaking story

inside the cover made me again believe in the good in mankind and the inner courage that is in all of

us waiting to surface.

Nellie had a very wonderful life as a child - loving parents, sibling, and an aunt that loved her more

than anything. Then, within a few short cherished years, her entire life spiraled out of control.

Losing everyone she loves and alone in the world, Nellie must learn to face challenge after

challenge. Raised in foster home after foster home, Nellie finally finds somewhere she can feel safe

in and begin to trust. This trust is short-lived. You sometimes wonder if life can get any worse; it

can, drastically.

Alone and struggling to rebuild her life, as an adult Nellie opens Aunt Nell’s Antique Boutique.

Each day in the boutique she faces new challenges that give her an inner pleasure that makes her feel

connected to those she lost. Her life is going beautifully until she meets the esteemed Henry J.

Lewiston, a Biblical Archeologist. This meeting makes her realize, all the more, that her life is not

complete and with his help she embarks on a life of wonders. Could all of the hurt of her past make

her miss out on the opportunity of love?

This inspirational journey of faith in God, and faith in mankind, is beautifully written. A simple

woman has a life of awe. The human vessel is so much more that the outer shell; it is the clay that

binds the vessel that holds all of the beauty. “Treasures in Clay Vessels” by Angela T. Pisaturo will

give you a vivid glimpse inside the soul of one remarkable vessel
