De Waal explores the integration of traditional rural Celtic prayer into everyday life. The life of prayer she depicts is a life of mindful awareness, grounded in the earth and everyday tasks. Oriented to the rhythm of nature and the cycles of the seasons, spirituality is not a thing apart but at the core of living. Mary Ellen O'Brien reads this book with a tone of devotion and an attitude of reverence. She shifts easily between the narrative and the excerpts from poems, hymns, songs, and prayers, drawn from Celtic literature through the ages. Maintaining an easy pace, O'Brien projects a sense of wonder and joy at the sentiments expressed. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
