“This story of how one monastic community found its place on earth and in the evolving church will certainly appeal to those who already recognize monasteries as spiritual oases. Protestants, people of other faiths, seekers, and skeptics will find in it points of connection with a tradition they may look upon with curiosity and occasional longing for what has been lovingly, quietly preserved by people called to prayer. Any thoughtful reader will appreciate the sheer skill of a storyteller who reaches deep into Catholic history to trace how lives are brought together for purposes that unfold in faith, sometimes among goats and tractors and clueless visitors. Huston offers an intimate glimpse into the complex community life, life-giving humor, and humble wisdom of men who know something about love the rest of us can’t afford to forget.”

  • Marilyn McEntyre
