Her correspondence, essays, and stories, it turns out, are full of references to prayer and her ideas about it. This unique "Book of Hours" is modeled on the spiritual life and prayer practices of one of our most interesting writers.

    DISCLAIMER: I received an Advance Reader's Copy of the book The Province of Joy: Praying with Flannery O'Connor by Angela Alaimo O'Donnell from Paraclete Press in exchange for a publicized review of the book.

    Review: Anyone that is familiar with Flannery O'Connor knows she was a prolific writer as well as a devoted Catholic. In this book, Angela O'Donnell attempts to combine both of those aspects of O'Connor's life. She has structured the book in a week's worth of daily prayer times patterned after the Catholic model, and has interjected O'Connor's writings and personal reflections in those daily prayer times for reading and reflection. This would be an excellent tool for any Christian - regardless of denomination - to enhance one's spiritual formation. I can easily see this book being coupled with a week of fasting to greatly deepen and strengthen a personal relationship with God. At the end of the book, O'Donnell has inserted a compilation of other writings and quotes from other authors. While these are good selections and excellent readings, I personally would have liked to have seen some more of Flannery O'Connor's writings in these sections, but that does not detract from the usefulness of the book. Catholic or not, take a one week sabbatical from work and the world with this book and a Bible, and I have a feeling you will care less about your denominational title than you will about your title as a child of God.
