Dark Night Of The Soul
The dark night of the soul is indescribably more intense and severe than depression. It is spiritual heart surgery. In 'The Desert Pilgrim', Mary Swander graciously takes us into her personal journey through excrutiating physical pain, deep mental anguish and dark spiritual suffering. From a 'no hope' medical diagnosis to throwing away her cane, Mary's story cannot help but make us realize that hope is eternal and that faith is not of ourselves, it is the gift of God.

Do not let any preconceived thoughts or even the first five pages prevent you from becoming enlightened by taking advantage of someone else's experiences. Ms. Swander describes the earthly hues of the mountains in New Mexico to melting neapolitan ice-cream in this unique story about the power of faith. If you prefer fiction, then you will relish the true story that drives you to reach out to the author after you are finished.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A Healing Journey
In The Desert Pilgrim, Iowan Mary Swander shares her journey from debilitating illness to physical and spiritual healing with the help of an Orthodox monk and an herbal healer in an Albuquerque barrio. Swander doesn't exaggerate the extent of her recovery or the power of her regained faith, yet there is no doubt she has been transformed by this experience and by the wisdom and generosity of Lu and Father Sergei. Swander's writing is clear and accessible, and her story is an inspiration.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
