Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this top-drawer collection of meditative essays, D'Arcy demonstrates her special knack for sharing experiences from her life to reveal marvelous moments of grace, wonder, communion, and meaning."  —Spirituality & Health

"Paula D'Arcy is a master of internalizing wisdom from the scriptures, pondering these words in her heart and allowing new questions to emerge. She is, in fact, a true grand inquisitor who reminds us of the utter importance of asking ourselves the 'right' questions, of patiently wrestling with these queries regardless of outcomes or answers."  —Leaven Journal
