Mystical description of one person's spiritual journey Nov 9, 1999
This book was music to the soul! I look forward to enjoying more works of this author since her work "The Singer and the Song" penetrated mind, heart and soul. As a OTR truck driver I now appreciate the beauty and grace that can be found just by getting in touch with nature, sounds, and silence. 5 stars for Miriam Therese Winter
