Falling Into Light is a luminous memoir, the story of a woman with impaired vision, who sees with depth and clarity. Clare Morris sees the undulations of her long life-river so vividly she transports us into her world. A Quaker, Morris follows her spiritual yearning into Catholicism and the convent. A fiery social activist, she follows her Quaker conscience into the peace movement. A painful mother-daughter estrangement is healed, in the context of protesting war.
