Literally the best book!

I almost know this book by heart. I received it as a gift at a very dark time in my life many, many years ago. It comforts me just as much now as it did at my first reading. Hearing it on Audible made an already beautiful experience even more breathtaking. I’ll listen again tomorrow.

A New Favorite to Listen to Again and Again!

what a treasure to find such a timeless classic AND paired with an appropriate narrator! I rarely buy audiobooks outright with cash, but I certainly am glad I did. It is equally rare to find an author who is such a wordsmith, weaving together a beautiful poetic prose in such a way that is both glorious and unpretentious. The only comparison I know of is Rabindranath Tagore, another favorite of mine.

Timeless nourishment for the soul

40 years since I first heard these words and they still move me. They are a comfort in these dark days
