After thirty years in a Poor Clare Monastery, Karen Karper was drawn to the deeper spiritual life as a hermit. With only $100., some personal effects, and an unreliable Bronco, she moved into a rent-free cabin in Colt Run Holler, WV. She adopted a white Angora cat she named Merton the Tom and plunged into a primitive lifestyle for which she was totally unprepared. Without indoor plumbing and heating with wood, she learned how much she didn't know. These vivid vignettes describe highlights of her six years as a solitary, narrating encounters with copperheads in her woodpile; vicious wild roses; and a Flame Azalea which caused her to remove her shoes and worship where the deer knelt to pray. Throughout, she depends on God who never fails to meet her needs, though often only at the last moment! Readers who have savored this book since it was first published find they return to it time after time for the inspiration and living experience it provides. For them also, God begins to be anew.
