I recommend this for seekers who have a sense of humor and do not expect to find an answer. I place this book in the company of books by Annie Dillard and Ann Lamott -- women I wish I could spend a weekend with talking about life.
Certainly, Ms. Shapiro has reached a point in her life where a thorough examination of her faith in something larger than herself seems in order. She writes in a thoroughly readable and conversational tone that had me turning the pages, curious to see what was coming next, perhaps just as curious as Ms. Shapiro is to see what's coming next in her own life. Her book is a compelling narrative of her life's passages, how she's dealt with numerous crises, what she's learned from her valuable friendships, how she's dealt with family members whose life paths were far different from her own, how she's dealt with her own limitations, her fears, her anxieties, how she has sought solace in various wisdom traditions, taking the greatest comfort from the ancient esoterica that holds the most meaning for her.
I found her memoir to be an absorbing life story, rich in love, self-reflection, and a resolute determination to find an equitable path to follow through life. Nothing extraordinary happens to Ms. Shapiro, but she manages to invest her observations with a subtle and nuanced gravity that allowed me to take her reflections and expand them into some universal truths that resonated with me and could be made useful in the conduct of my own life. For that, I'm grateful to Ms. Shapiro for having shared her thoughts and feelings, and I look forward to further installments of her life story, from the present moment through what I would hope to be a very long day's journey.
personally,She is the friend every woman should have.
