Synopses & Reviews
A New York Times Notable Book of the Year 1993
An unconventional spiritual autobiography, told in a remarkable, outspoken voice and rooted in the messy realities and questions—the 'ordinary time'—of one woman's life, from infidelity to living with multiple sclerosis, to death, to renewing a marriage.
A New York Times Notable Book of 1993, this spiritual autobiography of astonishing candor and earthy unsentimentality has something to teach all of us about living. Full of probing intelligence and wry dispassion, Mairs relates her conversion from good-girl spirituality to something much deeper and darker.
