This new novel by the 2005 Hurston Wright Legacy winner is full of the wit, irony and mystery that she has become known for. Part murder mystery, part send-up of stereotypic expatriate communities of interracial, intercultural couples, this wickedly smart story centres on a black French Caribbean painter and her British college professor husband who have lived in the US, Japan and South Africa. Rosalie and her husband, Stephen, live in post-apartheid Capetown, a city where violent and petty crimes are familiar occurrences. This is the story of a husband who takes a night walk to buy a pack of cigarettes, and never returns. Not only is his widow left to cope with beginning a new life; she is obliged to solve the mystery of what appears, on the surface, to be a senseless murder.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Caroline Myss's brilliant, brave, and profoundly moving book takes us deep into the burning heart of Teresa of Avila's vision of divine consciousness. Seekers on all parts will find here mature wisdom and deep sacred passion expressed with thrilling directness and a fierce psychological precision worthy of Teresa herself."

-- Andrew Harvey, author of "The Direct Path" and "Son of Man"


""Entering the Castle" is...based on St. Teresa's seven interior mansions, which are explained and elaborated here...so beautifully, clearly, compassionately, lightheartedly, wondrously... as seven steps...to your own deepest self or soul. Teresa became not only a spiritual woman who had written a brilliant practice manual, but a saint who saved Caroline's life, showed her her soul, awakened her heart, and set her on the never-ending...timelessly fulfilled road of practice. I just know that Teresa would say 'amen' to this luminous book as the fruit of her calling to you, a calling to all of us to be mystics without monasteries in a world sorely in need of a touch of the divine...the true self in each and every one of us."

-- From the foreword by Ken Wilber, author of "A Brief History of Everything" and "Integral Spirituality"
