About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
At first I was disappointed that some of the people chosen were obscure, modern and unknown to me (as opposed to those who were more familiar such as Saint Ignatius and Julian of Norwich). But I found all them to be equally well-chosen; inspiring examples of living with faith, courage and closeness to God in spite of -- and even because of -- chronic illness and disability.
I'm not Catholic. Although the book is written by a Catholic and, presumably, primarily for Catholics, I found it accessible and spiritually uplifting. Ms. McGrane has done a much-needed service for those of us living with illness and disability. I related; I underlined; I wept. This is an excellent book, one that will itself become a spiritual companion for me on my journey.
