MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bold. Inspiring. Provocative. Carol Flinders shows us how essential the spiritual path is for us today, drawing on the traditions of Judaism, Catholicism, Tibetan Buddhism, and the world of nature as lived by these four extraordinary women, Flinders's careful and faithful rendering of each woman's spiritual life gives us a map to guide us through the moral freefall of our time. Read this book and hold on." -- China Galland "Author, The Bond Between Women"
"In this companion volume to her best-selling Enduring Grace, Flinders profiles the lives of four contemporary women of faith. Contending that her modern subjects are the spiritual heirs to saints and mystics such as St. Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, and St. Clare, she draws parallels between her modern subjects and their historical predecessors. Tracing the evolution of what she terms the 'mother line' through the centuries, she uncovers an unbroken line of succession linking the holy women of the past and the present. Fascinating enough to stand on their own, the individual stories of death-row-activist Sister Helen Prejean, primatologist and environmentalist Jane Goodall, Holocaust victim Etty Hillesum, and Tibetan Buddhist nun Tenzin Palmo serve as a collective inspirational tribute to the sacred feminine." -- Booklist "Booklist"
