CM reminds me of the many ways I can be connected with my soul. She blends the personal and the scholarly in a way that the reader feels cared for. I highly recommend her wisdom. World Enough and Time is a great springboard for discussion as well.
Despite the beautiful physical presentation of the book and listing of its resources, I found that the author's personal interjections about her failed and much-mourned relationship with her former partner really got in the way. It's almost as though the author found the book as an outlet for her purpose in life in order to reconcile her loneliness and pain from that separation. That deeply personal aspect that threads through the book might deepen the reading experience for some. But, unfortunately, it did not for me.
