9780889952010: Wrestling With the Angel: Women Reclaiming Their Lives

Collected here for the first time are the voices of such established writers as Margaret Atwood, Myrna Kostash, Sandra Birdsell, Sarah Murphy and Sharon Butala, but also the voices of those appearing in print for the first time such as Yasmin Ladha, Lia Pas and Lea Littlewolfe. From seasoned to youthful, all the writers here wrestle with confusion, dread, anger, fear or doubt. And all discover a wellspring of courage and honesty that allows them to carry on. Whether it's probing the chaos and terror of being shot at, as Sarah Murphy does in "The Night the Thirty-Ought-Six Got Shot through the Ceiling," or it's coming to terms with loss after being widowed twice, as Eunice Scarfe does in "No Time to Die." Wrestling with the Angel celebrates women whose own sense of grace becomes a purity of spirit that reinvigorates their lives.
