Since it was first published in the late 1970s, Blessings has won various awards, been serialized on BBC radio, appeared in numerous national bestseller lists, chosen by several eminent figures as their book of the year, published in a dozen languages and been the focus of television documentaries in the UK and the US.
This is an inspirational book for all who are struggling to make sense of any kind of suffering.
Mary Craig is an example to us all and I urge you to read her story.
'What keeps me coming back to read Craig over and above a way with words usually absent in accounts of faith and suffering - is that she offers no answers, no prescriptions, no rallying talk. Hers is an unflinching account of her own weaknesses and prejudices, but it is that sense that she never reaches a place of serenity and sureness, but continues instead to flail about, only inching towards understanding, that makes Blessings so compelling. For those inches, she knows, are enough.'
'The minute you open the first page of a new book, you know whether it is well-written or not. This one is. It blossoms. It captivates. Do not miss this book. You will be the poorer if you do. I have not read such a narrative for many years which I wanted to recommend with more enthusiasm.'
'A brave, poignant account of how the author has faced and overcome double tragedy it is a beautiful little book that will bring immense comfort and understanding to anyone who is suffering, bereaved, depressed or just sad. I beg you to read it.'
