about

The inspiration for this book comes from its author's wanting a modern-day vision for solitude. She had no calling to leave society. She had deeply woven relationships as mother, former wife, volunteer for charitable services, and friend. She did not "leave all behind" but learned to live with all in a different way.This is her story told candidly and personally, but with a self-diffidence that will touch the heart of everyone who, in the words of Cardinal Newman, seeks to be "alone with the Alone."
