I have read this author since her Barbara Samuel days and even a few Ruth Wind category novels She is an auto buy for me A good read always guarenteed she s not let me down even once But this book was something With each novel O Neal gets better digs deeper does than transport me but something like transforms me I m saying this clumsy the things she says clear Notice I don t give summaries of stories Today after finishing this book I needed to vent A few of the elements of this book spoke right to my heart The heroine is a lapsed Catholic So am I She is a Unity minister I also left Catholicism for Unity Looking for answers seeking spirit This is what O Neal does so well here She portrays what it feels like to be without answers to smack up against evil to live in a world of ambiguity As for Unity when my church in Detroit had the good fortune to hire Marianne Williamson as our minister I could not believe it Williamson reminds me of O Neal in her unrelentingly honest search for truth I d read Williamson and worked A Course in Miracles in a dark period of my life and so to hear that one of my favorite authors would be lecturing every Sunday at my church well that was my miracle But Williamson is JewishUnity is ChristianIf there s one uibble I have with the spiritual aspect in O Neal s book it is the problem I ultimately had with Unity Because Williamson is a Jew she eventually got the boot I see things in a broader inclusive way than just Christian There are other religions and spiritual paths I gotta say though that O Neal got all the touches right for both Catholic and Unity And I think that without putting it into direct words she also went beyond Christian beliefs in some of the later passagesNow having talked about all the spiritual aspects of this book there s much to it There s love of course and conflict and trouble and redemption There s something almost holy about O Neal s prose She s not a christian writer This is that kind of book It s a novel that goes beyond borders of what a love story should be what a religious calling should be and what spirit can do
