Blessings: A Heartwarming Classic of Hope

Overview

"If any well-meaning fool were to suggest, at such a time, that everything was really for the best, we would be justified in heaving a well-aimed brick.

Overview

In her lifetime Mary Craig has had to accept the fact that two of her sons were born "not normal."

"If any well-meaning fool were to suggest, at such a time, that everything was really for the best, we would be justified in heaving a well-aimed brick. Yet we cannot run away from our own battles without losing ourselves in the process. In the midst of chaos and confusion we catch an occasional glimpse of the calm, still center of our being, the essence of our true selves, wanting to be discovered."

In Blessings, a modern-day classic of hope, Mary Craig takes her readers on her own voyage of spiritual discovery. It is an unforgettable journey.

"The most moving book I have come across in years," wrote Morris West. "I believe it will strike a responsive chord in the hearts of men and women everywhere."

In this updated and expanded version, a whole new generation has the opportunity to discover their "true selves" through Mary Craig's hard-earned wisdom and hope.

Award-winning writer Mary Craig has written 14 books, most notably Blessings, The Last Freedom and Candles in the Dark. Her work has a transforming effect on the way people deal with suffering in their lives. "Blessings brings people hope," she says. "Many have written to say it saved them from suicide." Actively involved in the plight of Tibet under Chinese occupation, Craig has also written several books on that subject, including Tears of Blood, Kundun and Waiting for the Sun. Craig lives with her "lovely companion" Nick, her fourth child born with Down syndrome, in North Hampshire, England.
