A Prayer Journal
A Prayer Journal
Offered by Macmillan
Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Moving, January 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Prayer Journal (Kindle Edition)
I found this journal so intimate I hoped Flannery would approve its appearing before the public. First read an excerpt in The New Yorker and since I love her fiction, I read the journal. Very touching.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fable That Packs A Punch, January 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found this spiritual fable intriguing and worth thinking about. The animals' part in it added humor as well as perspective -- the author has a droll sense of humor. I'm planning to look for more works by Morwood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dawn Powell is Worth Reading, January 18, 2014

This review is from: A Time to Be Born (Kindle Edition)
I've heard about Dawn Powell but never read anything by her and was curious to do so. I enjoyed the story and would read more of her novels if I have the chance.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Forever and Ever, Amen (Hardcover)
This was a delightful as well as informative account of one woman's experience in the convent and in life in a wider community as well. Great sense of humor, but with comments that invite the reader to reflection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to learn Irish mythology, July 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book was recommended in a course I took in the Irish language. It is a translation of the Irish epic and I'm told it is the most readable of the available translations. It's a fascinating story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and informative account, July 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'd been looking for books to help me understand from the inside out what i is like for young adults to grapple with mental illness. This is a long book, but I stuck with it because the story it tells is honest and doesn't gloss over tough stuff. The perseverance of the author really impressed me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but not riveting, July 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've always been curious about this part of the WWII story. This account helped satisfy my curiosity and gave me a sense of the women who were taken prisoners.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overkill!, July 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For those who enjoyed her movies when they were kids, the book has photos from her career. It's too long to read cover to cover, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange Relation: A Memoir -- bought through Amazon, December 31, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was an honest first-hand account of how one woman, a poet and scholar, has dealt with the premature loss of the husband she knew through years of gradual dementia. It's a memoir I won't forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry Speaks Expanded - got through Amazon dealer, December 31, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A winning combination: hearing great poems spoken by those who wrote them, plus having the printed versions and illuminating essays on the poets. Economical too.
