Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Still, the initial idea of telling my story in this book gave me pause. The hardest thing about writing is telling the truth. Maybe it's the hardest thing about being a woman, too. I think of Nisa, the old African woman who was telling her story . . . She said, "I will tell my talk . . . but don't let the people I live with hear what I have to say . . . I know that feeling. But in the end, Nisa and I, we told our truth anyway.

Synopsis:

The author of When the Heart Waits takes the reader on her journey from traditional Christian wife and mother to a woman who argues for a feminine face of God as she travels the world looking for enlightenment.
