The Snoring Scholar Reviews Through the Year With Mary

Sarah Reinhard, of Just Another Day of Catholic Pondering, Faith and Family Live, CatholicMom.com and Catholic Exchange, has posted an absolutely lovely review of my new book, Through the Year with Mary.

I especially love Sarah's honesty in admitting that she wasn't initially thrilled with the idea of a "daily devotional" sort of thing, as she often tends to fall away from those.

She says that Through the Year With Mary was:

not at all what I expected. At 117 pages, it was slim enough to fit into any purse I would leave the house with. The quotes were not the usual Marian fare and the reflections were substantial, though often only a sentence long.

I read this book in about a week — a month or two each evening after it came — and I can tell you, with complete confidence, that it’s completely worth what you’ll spend for it. Whether you use it as it’s intended, as a daily devotional, or you read it as it suits you, you’ll find that you glimpse Mary in unexpected ways. The combination of off-the-beaten-track quotes and Edmisten’s accompanying meditation makes for a read that sticks with you in the very best way.

Thank you, Sarah! (said the author, blushing.)
