When I thought that our aged and much loved cat was on her last paws, I bought this book to help my grandchildren with our grief.However,the cat is still with us and well again! But my grandchildren have enjoyed this tender and lovely book and it has proved to be a helpful way of talking about death.

This has proved to be a very popular book with my three young granddaughters, aged 7 and 6 years old - it resonates with their own experiences and both story and illustrations are delightfully witty.I thoroughly recommend it!

This is a helpful book which reflects the monastic hours of the day in a contemplative way.There is a section for each hour, so that the book can be put down and picked up again later.Brother David writes in a very readable way, with sound good sense for daily life, and his book would be a good companion on a retreat. I found it chimed in so well with our church practices [we observe a monastic day on one Saturday each month] that I gave it to a friend for her birthday and she was very pleased.I enjoyed this book so much, that I would like to read others by Brother David.

by Sister Wendy Beckett
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars sister Wendy's Story of Painting, 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sister Wendy explains the pictures in a clear and understandable way, which is ideal for a novice like me who would like to know more about art through the ages.It is also a very useful reference book to consult when I read elsewhere about an artist about whom I know very little.

This review is from: Winter Tales (Paperback)
This is a beautifully written, poetic book of short stories, about life through the ages as experienced by a broad spectrum of characters who live in the Orkney islands or come into cntact with them.I feel as though I am transported there whilst reading them - the scenery, scents, the sea, the people are all so vividly portrayed.It has made me want to visit Orkney.Anyone who enjoys poetry and the sea and islands will love this book.

Jean Vanier always writes from the heart and in this book he expresses so well what Jesus taught about loving all those whom we meet in our daily life.He highlights the importance of loving and helping those who are rejected by society,of being non-judgemental,and respecting others.It is an inspiring read and i found it very helpful
