Overview

In the tradition of bestsellers such as Kathleen Norris's The Cloister Walk and Anne Lamott's Traveling Mercies, Molly Wolf presents a powerful, inspiring work of survival, healing, and spiritual insight.
It is often said that the deepest spiritual insight comes in the face of life's most difficult challenges. Writers like Thomas Merton and Henri Nouwen, who have shared their journeys from the extreme of utter despair to liberating redemption with millions of readers, are now joined by a woman whose voice at once echoes theirs, yet is wholly original.
In a brave and moving book, Molly Wolf writes about the dragons that tormented her and the angels that offered her redemption. Without drifting into self-indulgent confession or pious victimhood, Wolf describes her emergence from an abusive marriage and her decision to move on with her life with revitalized hope and spirit. She explains how she found strength in the acceptance of her former self, writing: "If you know that you can never fully be put back to rights, because the past is past and can't be undone, you can accept the brokenness of others more gracefully and lovingly."
Like Wolf's previous book, A Place Like No Other, Angels and Dragons reaches out to the entire spectrum of spiritual seekers, speaking to a mainstream audience as well as followers of traditional religions. A memoir that acknowledges the "sloppiness of memory, the wild imprecision of the human heart," Angels and Dragons shows readers how to face the past honestly in order to begin on the path to a spiritually rich and rewarding future.
