I am not a Roman Catholic, but that did not stand in the way of my relishing this book, nor does it block my resolve to give it to all the mothers in my life--the young ones, who will find companionship and solace in Fanucci's vivid descriptions of the sleepless nights and endless tasks involved in caring for babies and small children, and those whose children are grown and who need, in retrospect, to have their work declared important and sacred.
Beyond Laura's experiences, so artfully written that they leap to life in the reader's mind, lies a wisdom unusual in a person so young, a wisdom that cradles a simple act, like bathing a newborn, in an expansive theology of God's loving care for us all.
If you are a mother, treat yourself to this book. If you know young mothers, be sure this book lies on top of their stack of "how to's," helping them bask in the grace, the "messy grace," of parenting.
