Synopsis:

A poet's incredible, life-changing experiences within a Benedictine monastery. After spending two extended residencies at a Benedictine monastery, Kathleen Norris takes us through one liturgical year--its rituals, its prayers, its daily activities. Within the silent walls of the monastery, Norris discovered a new perspective on family, community, and spirituality. Once home, she found that her many everyday tasks also took on new meaning. Through her masterly prose, a seemingly archaic world becomes immediate, accessible, and relevant to people of all faiths.


Review:

"Ms. Norris has a poet's particular eye, as well as a sense of humor and genuine social acuity.....[she] dares to leap across time and space to make the interests and concerns of any number of reflective thinkers her own....She is one of history's writing pilgrims."

New York Times Book Review

Review:

"For the uninitiate, it is a fascinating excursion in ritual, ecclesiastical tradition and such esoterica as the peculiar lives of saints."

Rebecca Pepper Sinkler, Washington Post Book World, 12/08/1996
