From Library Journal
Minnesota psychotherapist Baldwin's intent can be grasped from the title of her previous book, One to One: Self-Understanding Through Journal Writing ( LJ 9/1/77); she argues that such understanding leads to empowerment and action. At first this work seems programmatic, combining New Age lingo with vaguely pluralistic beliefs. But, like a spiritual quest, it gradually deepens in tone. Baldwin's thought-provoking and serious topic suggestions assist readers in looking within to discover who they are, and the interspersed writing examples and quotations are also (for the most part) first-rate. Life's Companion encourages reflection, silence, forgiveness, trust, and acceptance--the essential qualities of a spiritual life.- Carol J. Lichtenberg, Washington State Univ. Lib., Pullman
