A Reading Vocation

This is where I chronicle my reading life.  I also blog about writing at Lacey's Late-night Editing.


Unruly Catholic Women Writers: Book Review

Unruly Catholic Women Writers: Creative Responses to Catholicism - Jeana DelRosso, Leigh Eicke, Ana Kothe

The City Book Review just posted a favorable review of Unruly Catholic Women Writers, which includes my personal essay, "Where I First Met God." An excerpt from the review:


These unruly women are rightly critical of the Church that shaped and alienated them, but it is not mere rejection of an ancient patriarchal society that drives this anthology. Rather, these are the stories, the songs, the prayers, of children who long to forgive, to see their broken home repaired, to come home.


Grateful that the book was discovered by a reviewer her truly "gets it."
