Product Description

Winner of a 2014 Catholic Press Award: Spirituality-Soft Cover (First Place).

In this meditative spiritual memoir, Judith Valente, celebrated PBS religion journalist and celebrated poet, invites readers along on her transformative pilgrimages to Mount St. Scholastica monastery in Atchison, Kansas. The Benedictine sisters who invited Valente presented her with a view of monastic life and wisdom that brought spiritual healing to her fast-paced life-and promises to do the same for her readers.

With the heart of a poet and the eye of a journalist, Valente tells how her many visits and interviews with the Benedictine sisters forced her to confront aspects of her own life that needed healing - a journey that will invite readers to healing of their own. A beautiful and heartfelt work that crosses The Cloister Walk with Tuesdays with Morrie, Atchison Blue will resonate with readers of Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, Mary Gordon, and Anne Lamott.
