It tells of Hampl's quest to escape the indelible brand of a Catholic upbringing, following her to the "old world" of Catholocism in Spain and France, where she meets other pilgrims, back home again, and finally to a monastery in northern California, where she is able to settle into the real goal of her search: the silence of prayer.

About the Author

Patricia Hampl is the author of A Romantic Education, Woman Before an Aquarium, Resort and Other Poems, Spillville, and I Could Tell You Stories. She lives in Minnesota.
