Mary Morrison (Let Evening Come) writes of the despair that can descend during a long illness: the depression, withdrawal, and denial that comes with loss of hope. She also writes of "asking" and receiving the unsought answer. And, finally, she writes of the long road back to wellness and contentment with life as it is--not as it was, and not as it "should" be. A very good book for caretakers of an ill person. Perhaps also a good book for someone on the road to full convalescence.

This is a beautifully written description of a long severe illness, when Morrison discovers that she wants to live in attention to the present moment, in being here and now, in living her gift of days with joy, with a quiet mind. It is a lovely account of spiritual learning.
