Product Details

Praise

“A fabulous book—brilliant, tender soulful. Nora Gallagher is everything I love—smart, searching, vulnerable, faithful, doubting, deeply real, and a beautiful writer.” —Anne Lamott

“Phenomenal. . . . May be the best book about real faith that I will ever read.” —Sue Halpern, author of A Dog Walks into a Nursing Home

“Part medical mystery, part critique of the American health-care system, and part commentary on modern faith.” —The Washington Post 

 “Gallagher’s memoir is about many things: illness, mortality, faith and doubt, work, busyness, navigating through the crazy quilt that is the American health-care system, and, ultimately, about regaining one’s health and one’s place in the universe.” —Booklist

“A poetic tale of a personal medical crisis. . . . The author navigates the complex American health care system, the fear and mystery surrounding her search for medical answers and healing, and her renewed appreciation for the necessity of vision: to read, to write, and to view the world. . . . A deeply introspective journey.” —Kirkus Reviews 

“Poignant. . . . Gallagher does not dole out easy answers in this somber, reflective work. But she finds the humble, bracing imperative to live in the present.” —Publishers Weekly 

 “[Gallagher] learned how illness can strip away not only the illusion of control, but also one’s faith, hope, and very identity. . . . She radically redefines what faith means to her.” —The Christian Century
