In a book overflowing with grace, Lucinda Vardey--who collaborated with Mother Teresa to create her international bestseller A Simple Path --gathers an incandescent, unprecedented selection of nearly a thousand prayers and thoughts about prayer, set down through the ages by women of many faiths.

Queen Esther, St. Teresa of Avila, Meera, Simone Weil, Emily Dickinson, Annie Dillard, Julian of Norwich, Sun Bu-er, Marianne Williamson, Marion Woodman, and hundreds of others are among the saints, spiritual teachers, poets, healers, and anonymous women whose passionate words generate a dazzling arc of love between women and their most profound beliefs.

In prayers of praise and thanksgiving; calls for mercy and courage in the face of death; lives of surrender and holy love; in celebrations of the soul's unfolding, readers will find their burdens lightened, their paths illuminated, and their hearts inspired.

This collection is unparalleled. In itself, it defines for the first time what women's prayer actually is. And within these pages, readers will find spiritual sustenance to last a lifetime.
