In a book overflowing with grace, Lucinda Vardey-- compiler of the international bestseller of Mother Teresa's spiritual teachings A Simple Path-- gathers an incandescent, unprecedented selection of nearly a thousand prayers and the thoughts about them, set down through the ages by women of many faiths.

St. Teresa of Ávila, Simone Weil, Emily Dickinson, Annie Dillard, Julian of Norwich, Sun Bu-er, Marianne Williamson, and hundreds of others are among the saints, teachers, poets, healers, and anonymous spiritual women whose prayers of praise and thanksgiving, mercy and courage, and surrender and holy love inspire and celebrate the soul's unfolding. This collection is unparalleled in its illustration of the unity of women's faith. Within its pages, there is spiritual sustenance to last a lifetime.
