Review:
This is a wonderful book that takes the thoughts and writings of Julian of Norwich as the basis of a daily meditation and then builds on them with wonderful poetic insight and real consideration that helps to highlight how wonderfully relevant these writings of a mystic from the 14th Century can still be today. Indeed De Gruchy's work is vivid with human insight gained through hardship and loss, that so well reflects and interacts with Julian's work that sometimes it is almost a little hard to tell which is the original work of Julian as opposed to just a modern translation or reinterpretation. This is a wonderful book for daily quiet times regardless of whether you have ever encountered the work of Julian of Norwich or not, However if you have then you will find this work to be even more insightful and a wonderful addition to your library. If you already attend a Julian Group then this book is likely to be a positive must indeed.
