Writing with lyrical grace, Kathleen Norris takes us through a liturgical year, as she experienced it both within the monastery and outside it. She offers her rare perspective on being both an insider and an outsider, how immersion in the cloister world - its liturgy, rituals, and sense of community - can impart meaning to everyday events and deepen our spiritual and secular lives.
