''A gifted writer, Virginia has taken me on a Journey filled with awe, terror, and ultimate peace. I climbed every hard-won pass with her as she pedaled toward higher truths and deeper understandings. I marveled at the majesty of God's glorious earth-making as seen through her eyes. She renewed for me old and trusted friends in the quotes of Tillich, Merton, St. Teresa of Avila, and a host of others. I feel deep gratitude for having been on this Journey. This story is soulful, engaging, and deeply moving.'' --The Rev. Dr. Gwynne Guibord, The Guibord Center - Religion Inside Out, Los Angeles
''It is risky baring one's soul to the world but Virginia is clearly prepared to take that risk. In the process she has reached the insight that the search for one's true self is the search for God, and vice versa. Her honesty in that quest is a breath of fresh air.'' --Richard M. Gray, M.Div., PhD

I don't consider myself a religious person, and wasn't sure I could relate to a quest for god, but something about this book drew me in. This is no milk toast woman! She is earthy, passionate, and speaks quite plainly with fierce, honest language. She is one tough cookie.
I am so happy I found this book, and recommend it highly.
This an important and enlightening book for all of us, as the great mystics tell us, "Within every human heart lies a terrible homesickness for God."
